Tyson Barrie has just as much potential. Except he plays the right side, and is a better skater. Younger, and cheaper.
O'Reilly is comparable to Patrice Bergeron.
Colorado may not have a choice but to trade O'Reilly soon, and get value for him. Del Zotto and O'Reilly are fair value. But the Rangers would need a defenseman in return. That's where Barrie comes in. But to get him we have to up our package. Colorado would need a defensive center after losing O'Reilly. Boyle is young enough, and fits the role. We would have to add a bit more, 2nd tier prospect and pick. We have 3 3rds. Probably a 4th 3rd if we don't reach the Cup Finals, which is the condition of that pick from the Nash deal.
It's a deal that makes sense for both clubs.
I am lightening up to this. If there is a deal, it should be exactly as you speculate
