That's tough. Maybe Hunwick because he can actually skate. They can limit his minutes with EJ/Wilson back. But he can't play on the PK so Sacco would have to trust O'Brien or Barrie to kill penalties. Zanon's shot blocking might be missed but he is really bad at everything else.

I'm done with O'Byrne.

O'bryne is a pylon and O'brien is good for 1 or 2 penalties a game. Pick your poison.

Honestly...SOB... He might actually play defense and generate a bit of offense instead of just standing around.

The penalties suck but the last couple on him have been terrible calls.

I just don't understand why Sacco outright refuses to bench O'Byrne or Zanon. It's O'Brien or one of the kids, there's no alternative.

Exactly...no matter what he does or how bad he plays...ROB never gets benched...

Yet Sgarbossa only got 2-3 games with grinders.

SOB looks at a ref wrong gets a penalty and gets benched.

ROB looks horrid in like 8 straight games and hes the top D Pairing with his fast but terrible partner, and they both get to play.

We can trade O'Byrne at trade deadline. They are building up value for him by playing him, or maybe lowering value. I'm not totally sure!
