Also, people (for example
) are saying that O'Reilly is not proven. How exactly he isn't proven? First of all, this guy wasn't supposed to make NHL as 18 year old. How many second rounders have done that? He probably wasn't supposed to score an OT goal in playoffs in his rookie season. He probably wasn't supposed to be the best (ok, arguably) defensive U20-forward in NHL. He probably wasn't supposed to lead and get 100+ takeaways in his third season. How many players have done that? And for sure he wasn't supposed to lead Avalanche in scoring. Scoring is, like I wrote earlier, a trivial part of O'Reilly's game.
There simply isn't this proven U21 defensive forwards in the world.
