I agree that five million is steep, but there's a good chance he doesn't get that much depending on the term. Both Purcell and Malone will have a 4.5 million cap hit next season anyway, and given the amount of NHL ready forwards in our system, I'd be shocked if at least one of those two isn't dealt by that time. Malone's NTC is obviously an obstacle, but in the end of the day I doubt that acquiring O'Reilly will put us in a bad spot financially once everything shakes itself out.
