situation happened to Streit while in Mtl. He said it himself on numerous occasions that it was difficult to adapt and re-adapt himself to playing on the 4th line, LD and RD...
O'Byrne was in the same position where he was so afraid to make a mistake that he was scrared ****less on the ice... it has nothing to do with skills but CONFIDENCE in his skills...
The Habs failed misirably with O'Byrne and are repeating with Weber - two right handed d-men, a precious commodity in the NHL. Hopefully they won't ****ed up with Subban more.
O'Byrne was the ideal #6 d-man. Big, strong, who could clear the crease. fast enough on his skates...
Weber could be as good or better than Diaz if you give him time.
Streit should had never been left available as a UFA.
