Either way he doesn't deserve either. I can't fault the guy for asking the world but we shouldn't cave and give the world when he hasn't really proved anything. One year where he was given an opportunity to play with our best player (Landeskog) all year doesn't mean jack. If Landy had played with Duchene or Stastny all year O'Reilly wouldn't have lead the team in scoring, its all relative.

It looks like we have a Turris situation going on with ROR, hopefully we can trade him for a quality dman.
You got all that from that article? Did we read the same article?
