I don't think I'd place the franchise tag near O'reilly. He can be a core player, no question, but more in the sense of a Kesler or a Richards. Great defensive players with offensive upside and leadership qualities. But these guys aren't franchise players. Keep in mind, I don't think there are a ton of franchise guys in this league. Crosby,Malkin,Stamkos,Tavares,Weber etc. The elite of the elite.
