I'm not voting for O'Brien in any of these polls because in my mind he is already on the team. At twenty-three years old I think the fan base/management knows what this kid is going to be, and he has played enough games to lose his rookie status. I don't really care that he hasn't hit the 60 game mark or whatever this poll considers the cutoff point to be honest. Really I'd consider Cowen who has played more games to be more of a "prospect" than O'Brien at this time.
