Good deal for all involved.
For those claiming that Montreal dealt O'Byrne for nothing: not true. Bournival is a solid prospect. Indeed, he was drafted in the early portion of a deep draft, and has had a good start to the season this year, showing significantly more offense.
O'Byrne gets a fresh start with a young team that might be able and willing to give him a longer leash.
Colorado gets a big body defenseman that can add some physicality to a D that's a little undersized and definitely facing a whole slew of injuries.
Good stuff. Nice move.
