Here's what would be interesting about O'Reilly, though. He's basically a Pavelski type of player. So if we were to acquire O'Reilly, would that not free up the Sharks to trade Pavelski for a winger like Kessel? Then, play Thornton-Kessel in softer minutes? Marleau would be O'Reilly's Landeskog, then let some other winger ride shotty with Thornton/Kessel, like Galiardi or Wingels?

Also, a Couture-O'Reilly 1-2 center punch is acceptable once Thornton/Marleau retire/decline (I'm imagining Thornton in the #3C role).

When it comes to trading for O'Reilly, though, I can't imagine a way to get him without giving up Vlasic.
