Not sure what you mean by "proper #1 centre".

I think Kessel would benefit the most from a two-way centre who is good along the boards and in front of the net. Kessel is a puck possession player, he doesn't need a playmaker on his line to have success. What he does need is a centre who can cover up for him defensively and go to the places he won't in the offensive zone. I think O'Reilly fits this role perfectly, plus he is extremely young and has offensive upside. What's not to like?
