Anybody know why Jimmy O'Brien is in Maclean's dog house?
i doubt its much more than he's just not very good.
Russell puts it in words we can all understand :-)
I thought he worked hard. But the coach has his reasons. I myself would have given Filly more chances, but I don't know the full picture by far.
O'Brien was scoring early in the season, but with Silfverberg and Z-bad showing up and stealing the show, he's slid down the list to an occasional fill in as needed. He'll be back if there are more injuries, but with players coming back and two call ups starring in their current role, his place on the roster isn't a regular player spot like it was at the beginning of the season.
Filly don't do more chances.
Not even in the KHL apparently.
I know I've been a broken record on this but...I would have loved to see O'Brien get some of that ice time given to Peter Regin. I think it's just the draft thing with those two, right. O'Brien is a Muckler pick and Regin a Murray pick.
Either way, with these young guys rolling out there it makes all of these other guys look quite minor in the scheme of things...Even Zack Smith, Condra, and Greening. Z-Bad, Connacher, and and Silfverberg are on another level.
