I'm not sure how he did this game because I missed it due to my own hockey game but I think O'Donnell looks good, given that he is playing third pairing minutes, but none the less he has been solid and I think he deserves some credit because I haven't heard a lot of people talk about him. When he was signed here all I heard was that he was too old and seriously slow but I think he does a superb job as a third pairing anchor.
Great post. He and Mezsaros are getting more than typical third pairing minutes though. Thats a good thing IMO. All three pairings are playing really well right now. I think O'Donnell hasn't really looked all that slow for a big old defense man either. Not fleet of foot exactly, but he gets where he needs to be.
