I'd also make a move for another top 4 D before contemplating another center. We're set at that position.
Zibanejad will be a better goal scorer than o'Reilly and actually play the wing. His ability on the flank isn't a hypothetical, it's something we've actually witnessed.
Turris has played wing and we've all witnessed it (most of us) when he played in the playoffs and "broke out". That was when he first really got noticed. Zibanejad might be a better scorer but I doubt he ends up the better player. O'Reilly is a much smarter player than Zibanejad.
I would take O'Reilly over Zibanejad always on any team.
