Maybe Liles is the right partner for O'Byrne, and the system/partners in Colorado weren't right for him. We'll see.
He needs a PMD next to himself because he simply doesn't know how to play with the puck. As for the system in Colorado not fitting him, there isn't a system in Colorado at all. I'm happy to see him and Johnny doing good.
