The interesting thing about both Defenceman and Goalies is that they are often as much of a reflection of the coach, how they are used, the system employed and their partners.

Take a look at Beauchemin in Anaheim - Looked terrible in Toronto, leading Anaheim D in playing time, points and is a +21 for them. Partnered with Souray most of the time, who was all but given up on, Souray is a +26.

Maybe Liles is the right partner for O'Byrne, and the system/partners in Colorado weren't right for him. We'll see.
