Please don't boo O'Byrne

I know theres an abundance of O'Byrne threads on the board some good, some bad.

I was as frustrated as any of you O'Byrne haters out there, but nothing should make us boo one of our own (unless you pull a Samsonov). The kid is really fragile right now and if Carbo plays him (which he probably will) in Montreal on Saturday. We should rally and support our players. It was a horrible mistake, but who knows this could be the turning point of his season.

Obviously if he doesnt take this chance to rise up, then a drop in Hamilton could be a good idea, but never boo one of ours.

Anyone with me?

I dont know where you've seen good O'Byrne threads because I havent seen any. He's been bad this year.

As much as I agree, he shouldnt be booed, nothing is gonna stop the fans from doing it the next time he touches the puck on bell centre ice.

In the context of the last game I feel as I'm sure you've seen that any booing/jeering/taunting of O'Bryne was justified. However, if fans continue to dog O'byrne at future home games with booing then you have my total agreement. Yesterday is yesterday, and O'byrne I would argue still has a very bright future with in the NHL and hopefully one it will still be with the HABS.

If he was a vet yes boo, but he's a rookie and he needs time to develop. He'll make mistakes and he doesn't need us to know he made them..

no booing!

They should just show on the jumbotron: ''If you see someone booing, beat the **** out of him''.

Works everytime when people thrown stuff on stage at metal concerts.

I don't know, if he scores a couple of goals tonight I'm sure the fans will go easy on him

Well said !

IMO, the goal was a mistake waiting to happen. I didnt think it would be such a huge mistake though. But it was noticeable O'Byrne's been fragile.

I personally would never boo any of my players, under any circumstances, except if he becomes a personal insult to the Habs or the city (with a big mouth for example). To each his own i guess.

I think that some seasons are made or thrown away with events like these, and as fans if we get up and support the weak and fragile players when they need it the most, we might see an impressive turn around.

Emotive, moving pleas to not boo O'Byrne are all fine and dandy, but if O'Byrne plays well, fans will quieten down. Maybe if he threw just one hard bodycheck, fans would cheer. It's up to him to turn the tide.

Or Gainey can call them cowards again. I hope it doesn't come to that though.

They won't boo him if he plays well.

Honestly, his open net goal against us was just the icing on the cake. Chanting his name in that derisive way by the fans was classless, but at the same time, you have to put yourself in the shoes of the fans who were at the game. I would've been royally pissed too.

Normally I would agree, but he just sucks this year and hasn't given the fans anything to cheer about all season long.

If he isn't taking lazy penalties he is dumping the puck instead of shooting. He doesn't use his size at all, he isn't physical nor does he move the puck well out of the defensive zone.

Boo him I tell you, BOO HIM TILL HE CRIES TO HIS MAMA!

Dude, he hasn't even played one full season yet!
Lord, some fans expect rookies no matter their skill level to just come in and dominate. Imagine, fresh out of University, your first job, and you are expected to know and work as if you are a 10 year vet...Last I checked, most "normal" people tend to need some time to adjust and get some experience under their belt before really coming into their own...but that's just me. Maybe I'm way off in lala land and all rookies should just come into to the league with no experience and play like a vet. Oh well, guess I have much to learn.

**** even if he makes a few nice bruising hits I'd think fans would bite their tonges, fans are like fickle 10 year olds with ADD, they forget real fast about past mistakes provided you do good ***** now.

I agree no booing.

However, what if he dumps in our net again? What do you think would happen? Never
another game in the NHL ?

That would probably be a first. Score in your own net 2 games in a row. My god..they would probably lynch him

The morons in the Molson Ex section will probably boo him but who cares. As O'Byrne said after the game: these things happen, tomorrow is another day. To O'Byrne's credit, he faced the music after the game speaking to a horde of journalists without losing his composure. He skates well for a guy his size and will certainly improve with time. C'est en forgeant qu'on devient forgeron.

I agree with you except for one thing : morons aren't limited to one section of the stadium, and describing all fans from that section as morons is a stupid as ... booing O'Byrne for no reason?

I think that was huge on his behalf. He was on the brink of tears man.

Never said all fans from that section were morons. It just seems to me that the booing of our own players is louder coming from that section and I'm not the only one saying that.
