I think most people think an offer sheet for a guy like O'Reilly is the only way you get a young, very promising player like that without giving up any of the big 5.

The thinking is that sure he's a risk because he's not a completely proven asset yet but is there anyone else out there that is A) available and b) available for a price the Oilers would pay in terms of assets going the other way and C) is a solid proven player?

I can't think of any names offhand that fit all 3 of those criteria.
