I had hopes for him O'Byrne. I think he has the size, skating and defensive hockey IQ to do the job. The problem with him is self confidence and specially self confidence in what he will do once he gets the puck. He might get it (confidence) in Colorado or somewhere else, and he might even eventually come back to Montreal once he has become a good player.....
But with a contract that ends with this season and one last year after that before unrestricted free agency, I must say to those who write that he will become what we have been waiting for in the next 2 or 3 years...that even if the future proves them right, it is in no way a logical argument against trading him.
(Why not sell something now that has no real value now, when you think he might have value in 2 years but you know you can lose him for nothing in 1 1/2 years...)
As far as what we got back....lets wait and see.
