No, Duchene may have put up more points, but it wasn't like O'Reilly sucked in those first two seasons. ROR has always been reliable defensively from the start, and he proved he could be a reliable top-six forward and scoring threat this season.

So no, it's not a wash. It's ridiculous for anyone to expect O'Reilly to accept the same wait-and-see contract that Duchene signed.
