Jumping the gun are we jeez? Do you know how many times players play over their heads when they get traded? They want to make the team, they get a kick in the ass, and their team mates want to let them fit in.

O´byrne is not a smart hockey player. He can make a lateral hit at the boards, but after that his skills and smarts are below average. Avalanche fans will see soon enough. You cant teach a dumb hockey player how to play smarter.

That said, he could definitely be better than he was here, giving that he doesnt always have to sit in the pressbox because of inferior depth.
