Completely agree. I'd trade for O'Reilly, and let him, Hodgson, and Foligno lead the team. They'll get great support from Girgensons, McCabe, Pysyk, and McNabb.

Over time, the leadership of the team will transition to the names mentioned above, and things will get better. Adding O'Reilly begins the process.
