Do WE go after him? If so, what can we realistically offer? And where does he play? (or what do you do with Bozak/Grabbo?).

Obviously ROR has been discussed here quite a bit but this is looking like a Kyle Turri/PHX saga where he eventually gets dealt.
If it is about money, Grabovski is off the table.
Bozak is UFA he is off the table.
So what other center do the Leafs have with any value?

Gardiner isn't healthy right now.
Rielly isn't NHL ready.
Gunnarsson doesn't have the value of O'Reilly.

How about something like Couturier for O'Reilly?

The 197475 season saw another change to its playoff system to accommodate the league of 18 teams, twelve of which qualified for the playoffs. The top team from each division would earn a bye to the quarterfinal, while the second- and third-place teams from each division started their playoff run from a best-of-three preliminary round.
