I think O'Reilly has quickly become the most over-rated player on these boards (Sharp? Kessel!? Seriously?), but I agree with this completely. Look at the history of guys drafted 6th-15th overall. You'd be happy to have one turn out like RO'R.

Avs, just tell O'Reilly that if he doesn't sign a reasonable offer in the next week, you'll trade him to the Rangers. With Sather's track record of holding RFA's balls to the fire during 2nd contract negotiations (seriously, his final "take it or leave it" offer would likely be about half of whatever Colorado is offering), you'd have O'Reilly in the lineup before you know it.
