As much as we can all be sad to lose the player we WANTED O'B to be... he wasn't becoming that player here.

He wasn't going to get the ice time needed to become that guy, and he hasn't shown much progress over the last few seasons.

This year, Picard passed him on the team's depth charts. And this frees up a roster spot that clearly management was looking for by waiving Boyd. This was plan B I suppose.

Now bring on M.A. Bergeron . Or Bill Guerin.

Or, when needed, call up, say, a Palushaj from Hamilton to try to bring some more offense.
