About O'Byrne, I think he needs inspiration. He played inspired last season after "his" number was retired, until he got injured.

I also think he needs a mentor or at least a model. Could have been Robinson, but he's doing that in NJ now. What about Quintal or Ludwig? Check his game, give him tips, encouragement, I don't know.

How about, next year, the coach give him #17 (Currently used by Boyd) and have him mold his game on Craig Ludwig? It just happens that Ludwig was also oversize and a 3rd pick.

Anyway, I remember Sakic going from #88 to #19 and although there are different rumors as to why he did that, his coach back then said it was because he wanted him to play like Yzerman.
