I don't agree with this, after two good season (08/09 and 09/10) he has big drop in 10/11 and was badly injured last season. This is very risky move for Devils (not our problem), but also it would probably set a tone for Benn contract with Stars (also not our problem) and O'Reilly contract here in Denver, which is our problem unfortunately. It will be very difficult to sign Ryan under 5 millions.

It was told by Devils that Zajac is complete player who can play in all situations. IMHO last season shows the same for O'Reilly and he is better defensively than Zajac for sure.
