Ryan O'Bryan? Never head of him, though that is a wicked name.

Did you mean O'Byrne, the habs prospect? If that's who you meant, I think the best way I can describe his potential might be Hall Gill, but able to skate. He's a hulking (6-5, 234), physical, blueliner with limited offensive upside, but he's actually a pretty good skater for a guy his size. I'd say his NHL upside probably tops out around a #4 D.

realistically..

David Backes - decent 3rd liner, below average 2nd liner
Codey Burki - 3rd liner
Josh Hennessy - decent 3rd liner, below average 2nd liner
Patrick McNeill - PP QB
Ryan O'Byrne - stay at home 5th/6th dman
