don't know if the Caps have the horses to get him. I do know that I would put my best offer on the table to try. Players like O'Reilly aren't frequently available, especially when they're still under team control.
I don't know how we could afford to keep both Ribeiro and ROR. That would most likely be impossible. Even if for some reason we could pull it off we certainly would not be able to address our big needs of top 6 scoring winger and top 4 physical D. And thats assuming goaltending won't need to be addressed in the offseason.

We don't have the horses to get him and are not in a position to. Thats part of the argument against it.
