It makes Garth look like an idiot. I brought Bobby Ryan up b/c he is the only guy available that I would be ok trading Nino in a package for b/c Ryan is an instant 1st line RW with 80+ pt potential playing with JT.
i would make that trade in a heartbeat for centre depth like that. tavares, o'reilly, and nielsen give the isles their best set of players at that position since they made the yashin and peca trades. incidentally, i see o'reilly like i saw peca. isles fans loved peca because he was more than points. that's where i politely disagree with your comments. while i'm aware that ryan has greater offensive potential, i believe that o'reilly gives the nyi a greater chance to win more games, just like peca did.
