O'Reilly's value isnt in just his offensive numbers though, he is one of the top defensive centers, and thats not potential, so far through out his career he has been excellent defensively. Last year was just the first year he really took off offensively (he was only 20!)

But as I said, the rumor was it was a package that included a defenseman in return.
