It's simple, the organization did not believe in O'Byrne anymore. O'Byrne was given a fair shot to crack the line-up this year and he got out-played by Picard. It was his last chance to earn a permanent roster spot on the team and he failed. Add to that the fact that Montreal drafted a big stay-at-home defenceman in the 1st round last year certainly did not help O'Byrne's future on the team. Management is very high on the young Tinordi.

On the other side of the picture, Bournival is an interesting prospect. We'll see how he pans out a few years down the road. Looking forward to see him play for team Canada if he cracks the team.
