That's fair value... It's not compelling, though, because #2C is not our biggest issue, and it's plausibly something that could be handled within our organization in the future (Strome, Brock Nelson).
Isles would prefer to spend assets on a power winger. We need a Ryan Clowe/Chris Kunitz type more than we need someone like O'Reilly. That's nothing against O'Reilly, of course, it's just a question of priorities.
