I don't know why Oreilly wouldn't take Duchene's deal tbh. IF he truly believes he can be as good as Bergeron and be that star two way player, then take a 2 year deal and dominate the league for 2 years, then really cash in with a 5 or 6 year deal for north of 30M. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me that he thinks he deserves 5M after 1 good year. Not how it works at all.
Even Bergeron isn't a good comparison for him. When he signed his five year $4.75M deal at the same age, he was as good if not better defensively than O'Reilly, and coming off a 73 point season, and 14 points in 9 games in the WC.
