The O'Reilly/Bergeron comparison is overblown I think. Bergeron has been tearing it up since 2005 and has put up impressive offensive performances year after year. ROR has yet to put up one top quality offensive season. We're talking about buying out Richards and replacing him with a guy who has under 40 goals over his entire career because he looked good last season scoring a career high 18 goals and 55 points. I don't see it. Bergeron has proven that he's a solid offensive player and ROR hasn't. I get that offense isn't everything, but if this team is going to trade a big piece like MDZ for a center, it should be a guy who can put up points. We have a two-way 50/60 point center already.
