Not saying I disagree but really both moves made sense.

Boyd waived, because there was no place for him on our team and the org wanted the kid to get picked up so he could play rather than sitting in the press box. Obviously also the salary cap too.

O'Byrne traded, I predicted this a while ago, it's pretty obvious why, he's a #6-#7 d on many teams still and needs a chance to play. Keeping him in the press box isn't going to help the guy he needs to play and also again salary cap.

Imo it easily could be just because the org doesn't want to be known for sitting an NHLer in the press box an entire season but it could just as easily be for the cap space to make a trade or signing.
