Myers at the draft was considered long term projection who has done nothing but pass expectations at this point, I wouldn't get too down on him yet as he isn't close to a finished product. There have been many defenceman around the league that have struggled bad (Suter, Weber, Chara have all at times).

To me the reward of moving a player like Myers for RoR is not worth the risk.
Fair enough. I'm simply not as high on Myers as others around here are. Trust me I'd love to be wrong about him. the offersheeting route would be much more desirable than trading Myers for O'Reilly, but Iwas just gauging just how much people would like O'Reilly on this team.
