Anyways.. Grabo would not be the roster player going back (although I do think he will be shipped out of Toronto eventually).. if they wanted a 5.5mil center they could just sign ROR for that, but they don't want to do that.

MacArthur + Finn/Percy would be my offer. But I think they would rather a dman as the roster player..

Edit: to those saying OReilly isn't the guy for our top line. Our wingers are so good that we don't need that franchise centerman. OReilly would bring elite defensive ability to Kessel's line. Think Bozak but much more rounded.
He's not nearly as skilled as Bergeron and he's 6'3 225lbs like Backes.
