Can we think about Bournival like a Louis Leblanc with less offensive instinct?
Yes, Bournival IMO doesn't have top 6 potential but he's an hard working team player that every contending team need/want in their lineup.

I do like this trade, O'byrne is not getting younger and altough he can become valuable when on his game it was definately not going to happen in Montreal.

As for the trade itself it kind of reminds me a bit of last year palushaj vs d'agostini. Both players that had a hard time breaking up the lineup vs younger prospects that have the tools to make it in the big. Let's call it a time machine type of trade (it gives back 3/4 years in developpement and we hope we can get something more valuable in the long run)
