Picking up a real #4 would be nice, but looking around the league it's probably not an easy thing to do. Not many teams should be sellers yet. Mind you, once the deadline comes and the bidding wars open up, the prices probably increase. Tough call. We might end up just having to grit our teeth and live with one relative weakness.
I agree with that, trading for a guy right now would cost a ridiculous price. Obviously the team is doing well with the d-men currently in place. O'byrne is struggling the last 2 games no doubt, but he had a strong start before that, he should rebound. I'm sure that bad ice doesn't help, last night it looked like a tennis ball at times, it makes it hard for d-men.

I once received a very good slapper on the side of the knee, exactly where the protection doesnt protect you... Man, I had hard times to walk during the next 1-2 weeks... hurts like crazy.

Kovy should have given you a kiss right where it hurts to make the pain go away.

Indeed, people tend to forget his NHL debut, bad decisions (especially when hitting), bad passes etc... He had a very similar game that Obyrne has right now.

Because we were bad people forgive him more quickly, now we are asking/expecting too much in O'b, IMO. Give the kid some times to adapt to the league. we need to accept his mistake, and he need to learn from them, if the habs wants him to become a Komisarek like player.

But, yeah. Breezer is the fill-in.

Oh well, the guy can be of service if used properly and sparingly. The day off might have hopefully helped.

People who think he can become a #4 (me) think he can become one, down the line. Not today. O'Byrne has about 40 games of NHL experience under his belt and looks alot like Komisarek did his first 100 or so NHL games, that is, absolutely lost. In fact, I think Komisarek looked worse

They're both big guys and they have to learn what works for them at this level and what doesn't. It's easy for O'Byrne to overpower guys in the AHL just using his strength, but in the NHL, even smaller players like Ray Whitney are as strong as him. O'Byrne needs to continue filing out and getting more experience and learning from it. I'm totally prepared to accept all the mistakes because I know 1 or 2 years from now, we'll all be sitting here talking about how dominant physically we are on the right side with him and Komisarek

The team is good enough to play around O'Byrne's mistakes...

OByrne is in the perfect environment to learn. The team is winning and he's playing with Hammer. His decision making and play with the puck will improve with time, like ive said many times patience will pay off with OByrne.

In defense of RDS - Bouchard described how they had to remove Hamerlik's skate and leg protector when they took him to the locker room.

Komisarek had confidence issues because of Claude Julien coaching style - notice the dramatic and sudden improvement when Bob Gainey was behind the bench?

Under Julien's system rookies had a very short leash

I'm pretty sure all three are still exempt... There also used to be an emergency recall loophole where players could be recalled to replace injured players, but I don't know if that was dropped in the latest CBA...

Too bad this injury hadn't occurred 2 games later (vs. the Isles) where we could take advantage of our long lay-off to sit Hamrlik down for a week.

Oh well at least we have Dandenault (who's been very good up front this year)...
