And I'll rebut the (already well-rebutted) OP with his choice of rebuttal:

1. What other callup would have guaranteed scoresheet points in the past 4 games, with guaranteed equal or better W-L record outcome?"

2. Butler or Rivet as the 18th skater is a better lineup, how?

3. Or would BUF have been better off dressing only 11 forwards - surely Byron PREVENTED another Sabre from scoring more - Maybe Nieds would have 3 goals by now if he was double-shifted to get Byron's minutes.

/sarcasm

IMO, the recent injuries, call-ups, and line situation has FINALLY temporarily (it's Lindy, after all) resulted in forward lines which are balanced and effective.[1]

[1] If only because we can't have "All Cody, All the Time".

Yes so true, because Cody is so feared in the NHL.

Loved Byron's game thus far and have been pleasantly surprised with his play down low.


As for the OP

McCormick is damn good at his job. You'd be a fool to say otherwise.

You don't have to be Parros or Orr to be feared in the NHL.

If you polled every NHL player, I'd bet 90% of them wouldn't throw down with McCormick under normal circumstances (not sticking up for a teammate/defending themselves).

Just having a guy who's a decent fighter is an advantage because most guys don't want to fight and therefore will watch what they do on the ice.

As a rookie trying to fit in to a team Byron had played well, not great, and not bad. He is playing well enough to not stand out as a phenom. or a weak link. As a rookie, that is a positive sign in my book.

As for McCormick .... Effective, better hands, than a few guys on this team, takes no ****. Like it, like it alot!

Considering how effective he's been on the forecheck and throwing himself around winning puck battles, his game has been just fine.
Honestly, I'm a little surprised he didn't get an assist when he went down low to help force a turnover to McCormick on Vanek's 2nd goal in Tampa. Looked to me like he touched the puck. You can bet a "name" player would have gotten the benefit of the doubt there.

Okay seriously, is this fake? Who has an anti-Paul Byron agenda? I don't get it.

This goes back to another thread. Where the OP felt some posters were getting too excited over Byron's first two games.

Actually, I was going to ask that same question in the original thread too but opted not to. I was just surprised to see the topic pop back up again. Especially so soon.

My two cents, Paul Byron has been a pleasant surprise. Hasn't looked out of place at all, even physically. Good for him.
