Preds fans need to get over the whole Peverly situation. That type of thing was the exception rather than the norm. Another thing is I don't see O'Reilly's skillset transferring to the NHL level anywhere at anytime. Peverly wasn't successful here but you could see the skillset that would allow him to be successful. Fast, good hands, smart, good shot. The only great assets O'Reilly has is good hands and great vision/playmaking skills. That is it. He is small psychically and weak and can't create space for himself. He can be a problem in your own zone because he can't and won't take anyone off the puck. He doesn't shoot the puck and relies to greatly on his passing skills. I just don't see him ever being a NHL regular and fully expect him and Sulzer to not be on the team when the regular season starts.
