It's hard to replace good defensemen. Heck I'm stalled on giving up Stralman since there are only five reliable defensemen on the team right now. Trade a good one, and then lose one to injury, you might as well wave the white flag.
Brian Boyle could be a Martin Hanzal type for them, he's a proven forward, and play O'Reilly's checking minutes as a shut down center. Very good contract, and Col doesn't have to pay for minutes on top of Statsny and Duchene.
More money to spend on defensemen that way. LaCroix and Sherman have bad blood with MDZ's agency (same reps as O'Reilly), and would have to deal with them on MDZ's upcoming deal less than 18 months from now.
If they are looking for 4 pieces then they are deluding themselves.
