As long as O'reilly is signed to a longterm extension (5-7 years) at ~4.5 million.

I know some may not like the cost but in reality If I told you that we'd draft a Selke calibre 50-60 point center with a pick in the 7-20 range, you'd be nuts not to accept that. Then add 3 years of development to him and it's a home run.

Our top 9 next season becomes (If Iggy comes back):

Cammalleri - O'Reilly - Iginla
Cervenka - Tanguay - Hudler
Baertschi - Backlund - Glencross

But seriously no. I know O'Reilly great but theres no guarantee this guy gets us into the playoffs. Look at Toronto trading for Kessel, they thought their team was going to climb into the playoffs after that trade. Giving up our first is out of the quesition. ANY team not in the playoffs have a shot at first overall, not a chance I would give up the first.
