People mention off ice issues, those are SEVERELY overblown. He's very vocal, passionate, and speaks his mind. Sometimes that gets him in trouble with his coach, but it makes him a fan favourite on the ice too when he's sticking up for his team mates.
The penalty issue is overblown, that was 2 seasons ago. Last year his PIM was at 79, while it was 196 the season previous.
O'Brien is a solid #5 defensemen who brings grit to the table and doesn't make many glarring mistakes. You guys will like him, and as a Vancouver fan I'm kinda sad to see him go.
How can you say that he doesnt make alot of mistakes, two years ago the guy had almost 200 PIM. He makes stupid mistakes all the time!!!
