I think being bigger would help, but he's got some speed and skating issues (like his little brother) that are also keeping him out of the NHL, IMO. I could see Spaling, Thuresson, and possibly Mike Santorelli all called up before O'Reilly.
If a forward goes down for more than a week, Pilhström is on the next plane to Nashville. Otherwise, I really don't see him being called up. I would sure as hell take him over Fiddler, Smithson or Peverley, but we just don't have the room with all those waiver-eligible contracts, and the org seems content with Hörnqvist and Jones on the roster. Poile hates to lose assets and we don't have the additional depth in Milwaukee to risk putting Peverley or Ward on waivers just to call up Pilhström.
