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:
Montreal - could but they should be patient
Buffalo - could but they should be patient
I see a total of 9 teams that could make a trade for ROR:
Once they sign him, they
move up in the standing as well.
