Honestly, I don't see him as a potential number one centre down the road and given the cost of acquiring him, which be Brodie+ or Giordano, it doesn't make sense. Better to save the assets.
This is how I feel about O'Reilly. He had one good season last year, now I'm not suggesting it won't continue, but we already have a number of guys who are capable/going to be capable potential #2 centers. Like Calculon said, I'd rather keep our assets instead of try and pry him away from Colorado.
