People seem to forget he played a solid 60 games for us last season.

It wasn't until Genius Joe Sacco (I'm trying it out) started playing him as a top pairing guy with EJ, that the wheels came off, he started thinking he was Bobby Orr and we started paying for it on a nightly basis with horribly costly mistakes. If Sacco had limited his minutes as a #4-6 guy instead, he would have been fine. Ideally, he's our #5 guy and that's the kind of role he can realistically succeed in.
SOB could win the Norris and I would still rather have Carle for 10 million over him. Other Avs fans get frustrated with O'Brien, I despise that jackass.
