Ryan O'Byrne

The Avs have a glut of bottom pairing defensemen and O'Byrne is the only one with an expiring contract. What kind of value does he have? Like I said, he's a UFA so it's not a contract any team would be stuck with and his current deal is reasonable. He's a big guy, normally solid defensively and is good on the PK, but has no offensive game whatsoever and could certainly stand to be meaner given his size. He's a good bottom pairing guy, but you have to pair him with a puck mover.

Given teams are looking for defensive help and him being a right handed shot, just wanted to see what value he'd have.

I think the Avs would be looking more towards younger NHL ready players than picks.
