I think it looks a lot like that.
Not now, but at 1/4th the cap hit, he's a much better bang for buck.

Honestly, I believe that's unfair to him 'cause as fake as he was as the "tough" guy, he had to protect himself and the others with very little help. But then we don't know how he was attitude wise.

Honestly, I wondered if he'd ever recover from that with the pressure in Montreal, I figured he might have to be shipped out for him to continue to develop.

Kudos to O'Byrne, keep it up!
Amen.

I never would have expected him to come back that strong. This kid has character I didn't suspect. With that purse incident, the first impression I had of him was that he wasn't that smart. Then, the horrible season he had last year didn't give me any more hope about him.

OB turns out to be one very good surprise this season.

Absolutely. About not looking smart I guess he was completely drunk during that incident. He wanted to defend a teammate but obviously it got him in trouble since "alcohol" and "wisdom" don't mix too well.

I think Gill helps molding him into a better player too. He's a good role model for O'Byrne.

Maybe memory is failing me but I thought it was Tom Kostopoulos who defended OB.

He did, but what got it all started was OB helping out Huet. The reason he took the purse was to get the phone out and delete some pics that Huet's wife wouldn't appreciate.

Well, OB is definetly getting there and sooner than Komi IMO. Wait till he plays with Markov at 5 on 5. With a second pairing of Hammer-Spacek. Even in his rookie season, he looked a little better than Komi did in his first two seasons. OB also seems to have better offensive instinct. I'm pretty sure that with time, it could very well end-up OB>Komi.

I think he's already ahead in development, unless Komisarek improved by a lot since he left here. O'byrne is holding up really well playing with Bergeron...imagine what a disaster a pairing of Komo/Bergeron would have been at this point last year?

LOL. Wow. Hahahahha.

Hate Komisarek all you want but he's a having a pretty damn good season in TO and for all his improvement, OB is no Komi yet.

It is safe to say in that no one will drop an anvil on your head or gouge out your eyes with a tea spoon, but it intimates that you go by the 'Hab players good, other players bad' mantra of evaluating talent.

O'b is showing that maybe he has a chance to grow into Komisarek's role, let's not lie about it though.

Komi at his peak brought a lot to the table. There were games were he dominated with physical play and shot blocking. Pre-Lucic Komi was an excellent player. Let's not forget a lot of us saw him as the next Captain.

On the plus side, he's had a terrible time in Toronto. Really tough start to his season before he got hurt. We'll see how he does now.

If Komi and Kaberle both regain their form, that'll be a very very good duo for the Leafs.

All that said, I really like what I've seen from OB and look forward to his continued development. He has the potential to be another Komi, maybe even better. Better hitter and fighter.

O'byrne vs Komisarek

Reading the thread about O'byrne's shot on komisarek got me thinking about who would win in a fight (Obviously on the ice)?

OB, better reach, taller, and the boxing lessons seemed to have paid-off.

Pretty much. He's flat-out a better fighter. Komi was mean and would sort of 'rage' his way to victory when he fought but he didn't really know what he was doing.

I don't know why, but raging to victory makes me laugh.

The Habs were very patient with Komi.
He really did suck in his first couple of years.
2 Years ago he was quite good and worth more than the 2 million or whatever he made.
Last year he wasn't worth the 2 million that he made, but it was also due to injury quite a bit.

This year has also been an injury riddled season on a new team.
I expect that he will become more solid.

O'Byrne in my opinion is ahead of Komi right now. I think that he is a better puck handler, and skater. Unfortunately he's not quite as tough, and can get knocked off the puck in the corners.
As he gets more experienced and more crafty, he will develop and quite probably become a more reliable D-man than Komisarek.

I have expected O'Byrne to become a solid top 4 d-man since the first couple of games I have seen him play. That has never changed even though he had a rough year last season. The kid clearly had potential, more than Komi in my view, he was just running a little low on confidence.

I was never a fan of Komi, even when he was in Montreal. O'Byrne is faster, taller, is a better fighter and has better hockey sense. With a little more experience, I'm sure he will become substantially better than Komi.

And what's this about Komi having a good season? He's minus 9 with 0 points. Precious little for a guy earning 5$M.

And Paul Mara is -12, Pyatt -7, and you don't hear about those 2 having brutal seasons.

+/- means nothing. Though, I do realize you mentioned it because the one you quoted did too.

Pyatt's new, I don't see him having a brutal season, since he does good plays, he's just inexperienced.
Mara, well, its been a hard season for our D. I think he's fine.
