I would not give up young assets or fill up cap space for next year until the offseason (that includes re upping Ribeiro)
I would agree if we were talking about acquiring an older player or rental type. Ryan O'Reilly is neither. It's not like we're talking about a guy who'd be a one-and-done shot. He'd be under team control for a minimum of four seasons and fits into the long-term picture quite nicely.
