Plus compare the way MDZ handled his contract issue and the way ROR did. How do you know ROR won't hold out at some point later if he has a good season? Considering he's doing it now after a 55 point season, he won't have to put up a point per game to hold out.
You can't compare O'Reilly to Boyle.

Stepan scored those points at a much older age.
