If an offersheet is coming, it is coming from a bottom 10 team - which equates to a top 10 pick in this draft. O'Reilly is a great player, but he hasn't shown enough for that kind of pick in this draft.
So there isn't any team between an elite and a bottom 10 in the NHL?

How many elite team is there right now? 5?

That should leave a good 10 that would not mind adding a 2nd line centre.


List of team that would welcome an upgrade at centre (bolded) - Team are sorted by points:

Team
Chicago
New Jersey
Boston
Anaheim
San Jose
Vancouver
Pittsburgh
Detroit

Toronto
Ottawa
Nashville
Montreal - could but they should be patient
St. Louis
Dallas
Edmonton
NY Rangers
Tampa Bay
Phoenix
Carolina
Winnipeg
Minnesota
Philadelphia
Buffalo - could but they should be patient
NY Islanders
Florida
Calgary
Colorado
Los Angeles
Columbus
Washington

I see a total of 9 teams that could make a trade for ROR:

Toronto
Ottawa
Nashville
St. Louis
Edmonton
NY Rangers
Phoenix
Winnipeg
Minnesota

Once they sign him, they should move up in the standing as well.
