Seriously, if O'Reilly were claimed on waivers and he turns into high scoring forward I think SLake and I will go on a killing spree.
Here's the thing, we need forwards that play a complete two way game right? Does O'Reilly fit that mold? Not saying every guy that comes through our system is going to be able to do that but unless he has top notch offensive skills, which I don't think he's shown, he's not going to have a spot on this team. As much as we bag on Dumont for his lack of D, he has exceptionally good hands and will put up points during the season. O'Reilly has shown a glimpse here and there.

Some guys don't work in all systems. Peverley didn't work here. O'Reilly may not work here. It's ok. Sometimes guys don't pan out. And trust me, I'd like to Cal work out here, I think he's a talented kid. I just don't see how it happens for him. There is a log jam and I don't know if he has another level or two to his game to get past some of the guys ahead of him.
