They're basically the same player, at different stages in their progressions, with O'Reilly having the edge because of his production last year. O'Reilly was given an opportunity to produce last year and he did. Eller never was given such an opportunity. You trade one for the other, it's a lateral move and it ends up costing you cap space. You add anything to the deal and its an overpayment. Also, O'Reilly projects as a 2nd line center. You're gonna bump Plekanec to make room for him? Galchenyuk? Makes no sense whatsoever.
