All this is assuming we're not selecting top 10 and ROR would be ready to play by late Feb. Otherwise hell naw. Pick up RJ Umberger at a fraction of the assets and eat his contract. He gives us the exact quality of ROR, plays C/W and is a lefty.
I could see Murray bringing that up and trying to get him at a lower value. Why give up a top prospect if we could send him an offer and give up a 1st and a 3rd, or not get him and keep the young guys. Even the first and a mid level prospect is better than trading Zbad or Silf at this time.

But, at the same time, O'reilly is someone that I could definitely see on roster with Spezza and Smith and potentially Turris unless he's switched to wing. With those centres, Karlsson/Cowen and Anderson/Lehner I could see a cup at some point.
