His value to ROR is pretty close....

How about Hanzal + Klesla For RoR + 3rd; might be beneficial for both sides?
That is the most hilarious statement in this thread.

Yeah, so Gormley, who put up good points in junior being a solid, two-way d-man, is struggling to do the same at the AHL level.

2012-13 Portland Pirates AHL 37gp 4g 9a 13pts 22pim -5+/-

Apart from your own personal opinion, exactly WHAT is pointing to this player being better than EJ at this point and time? His draft position??

Clearly, the value of Ryan O'Reilly, a player that has shown the ability to PLAY IN THE NHL since the age of 18 and EXCEL is close to the value of a guy that has never played ONE game in the league.

This is like an Avs fan trying to tell you that Tyson Barrie has close to the same value as Martin Hanzal or Mikkel Boedker.
