Come on, that's a weak counter argument. Does trading for ROR make your team better or does it not? That's the bottom ****ing line.
Exactly. Unless it's a huge overpayment, something I'll give credit to Darcy for rarely ever doing, Buffalo would come out of an O'Reilly trade a much improved team, both presently and in the future.

Also, the whole "we're treating this guy like he's the best player in the league" thing, no, we're treating him as a guy that compares very favourably to multiple players that have won gold medals and Stanley Cups - I'd say he's most similar to Bergeron, also similar to Richards and to a lesser extent, Toews. Every cup winner since the 04/05 lockout has had a player like O'Reilly.
