He's not strong on the PP. He reaped the benefits of our insane offense back in the day but he's not a particularly good screener even though he won't shut up about. He's good at defense and on the PK but nowhere near elite. O'Reilly is much better at both.

Versatility is only important as long as it doesn't take away from quality.

His vocal presence has contributed dick and a half to this team. If anything it may have pissed our stars off, the ones he leeched that contract from. If you want a real "leader" look no further than Alzner.
OK lets do it this way since we are talking about ROR here.

What is your proposed trade for him???

Keep in mind we'd necessarily say goodbye to Ribeiro in the off season if we make this trade. So it breaks down to:

ROR for Ribeiro+(roster player)+(top prospect)

Fill in the blanks and keep in mind we will not be the only bidder as there are teams with much more to offer. So don't try to put in any trash or high priced contract. If CO isn't going to pay ROR they aren't going to take a contract from us either.
