Definately. Should be in the mix for a fourth line job on the O-Sens next year.
I think so too, what O`Brien has is size, speed & the ability to score which could come in handy on the 4th line. I don`t get the impression from what I have seen that he is all that tough though. I guess it will depend on what happens with both Winchester & Konopka & whether either gets re-signed. It will also depend if Zibanejad makes the team & whether he plays centre or RW, lots of questions remain to be answered.
