He has 6 days from the end of the NHL season to the start of the WHC to get his *** to Europe.
Honestly I don't see how O'Reilly makes the team either. Canada conceivably have three elite scoring centers in Tavares, Stamkos and Crosby. Then you have Toews who can be used in a checking role on the 3rd line. Then there is still Getzlaf, the Staals, Bergeron, Giroux, Couture, M. Richards... All guys I'd rather have over O'Reilly.
Not that I'm bitter or anything.
