I like him but I don't love him. I think if we were to swap O'Reilly for him straight up, we'd lose the trade by quite a bit. I think Avs is right in asking for another valuable piece.
Well said, I agree.

That's why the Winnipeg deal is so much better. You get a decent forward as replacement (Little/Burmistrov) plus the chance to hit a real home run with a prospect like Jacob Trouba.
