A lot of talks about O'Byrne after the deadline, some saying he's just another Komisarek, some saying we got ripped (hard to lose a deal when all you give is a 4th imo), some thinking he'll be on the second pair, some thinking he'll be the 7th guy.

Thought I could take a look at some factors that might shine a light on where he fits.

....the Leafs have four defensemen to use as needed: Kostka, Liles, Gardiner and O’Byrne. From among these four, two will form the second pair and two will be in the press box on any given night. We don’t yet know who Carlyle will prefer to play, but there are three potential factors to O’Byrne’s advantage in getting more playing time.
