I don't think the organization does it especially after being so patient with Cowen and considering how good he looked last year, but the value is there.
You underrate Cowen. He's far more than a 20 point shutdown defender. He's a top pairing D who'll put up closer to 35 points than 20 most years with limited power play time. Cowen is untouchable, far more valuable than what O'Reilly can bring to this team.

JC is right on my untouchables just behind Karlsson and Turris. EDIT: followed by Lehner.
