Duchene, EJ, and O'Brien have already said they hope they get O'Reilly back. It's Dater so you never know how accurate it is but he said some of the players are frustrated about this whole thing but their frustration isn't directed towards O'Reilly.
This was the leader of the franchise for years who just brough the city a stanley cup. Not just jumped up two lines for a season and got 55 points. Also he did this in the offseason not holding out hurting your team because you are offeneded.

Im sure the players want him back, doesn't mean there isn't going to be tension if he actually did come back. Especially if he cashes in after both EJ and Dutchy took reasonable deals.
