How was Oreilly a Top 6 tweener? He led every Avs forward in TOI and Shifts per game, and his linemate of the entire year was #2 on that list...

Not only was Oreilly a Top 6 for us last year, he was our #1 for last year, he played the PK, the PP, and against the other teams top lines, every night.

I dont understand howanyone can continue to say Oreilly was our #3C, Duchene played on the Wing for most of last year or was injured, Stas and Oreilly were our 1 and 2 C's, with Oreilly being the #1 from pretty much December on. You can make the argument that Stas was the #1C, and I wouldnt argue it as its a perfectly reasonable opinion, but Oreilly was certainly higher then McClement last year, who was our #3C last year for most of the year.
