i'm sorry to see Obie leave. he is solid as 5th d and filled in quite nicely as top 4 for quite a stretch when injuries decimated the nucks d. unfortunately he and the coaching staff did not get along. go back thru the GDTs and u will see many times he was rated our best d on the night. his cap fit was the problem. neither alberts nor rome are better than O'Brien, but his salary is more or less what alberts and rome combined get and the nucks are battling the cap. most canucks fans rate him higher than bieksa. Gillis gave him a new contact during the off season, so ....

his penalties in his first year in vancouver made him a whipping boy for the irrational fans who blamed every loss on him if he took a penalty. i wish him and the preds luck. nashville just became my 2nd favortite team in the west.
