He doesn't burn the KHL either.

He worths not much more than DD + a 2nd or 3rd round pick. OR Eller + Weber.

Anyway the kid and his agent want the moon for his services.

Right now we need more better and bigger bottom line players + at least omne bigger d-man.
The problem with a trade for O'reilly is similar to the Kessel deal. You pay a lot in terms of assets, then you have to turn around and give him big money...may as well keep your assets and spend that money on a UFA.
