Don't know why, but i'M kinda wondering how D'Agostini will be affected by this. I hope he's not and realizes that if he plays on the first line, it's nothing but good news. He then, he also needs to realizes that next year, there might be a few more spots available. I think he fits into the category of "prospect we might be tempted to trade but will immensely regret it...."
But in all seriousness I agree with you maybe not with so many greater-than signs but yeah Weber is better than O'Byrne
would be delightful.
Boullion traded and Carbo drives a Delorean so Brisebois never signed
God help us when we have our first injury on defence or if Weber goes through a rookie slump..... You've just given away all our depth.

-O'Byrne is a defensive defenseman. We already have Komi, Hamrlik, Gorges and Bouillon(!!)
-Power Play defensemen: We have Markov and Hamrlik, but I wouldn't put Hamrlik on the 1st PP unit.
-O'byne isn't a veteran. 33 games played in the NHL don't make you a veteran.
-everything I've heard so far is that Weber is clearly outplaying O'Byrne.
so, could it be possible?
O'Byrne would have to clear waivers to go down.... we'd lose him for nothing.
