Ryan O'Reilly does not have what it takes to be a number one C. Second line centres are plentiful in the NHL. Heck, the Leafs have two or three second line centres.

If Jake Gardiner continues to improve, he'll be top two d-man and those are normally worth a hell of a lot more than second line centres.
