I agree. Let's assume that Buffalo and Colorado deal around O'Reilly and Grigorenko. If both of them fully develop into what they could be, Colorado wins the deal.
But O'Reilly is more developed, and because of that, more of a sure thing. So Buffalo's taking a chance on Grigorenko not developing for the better chance that O'Reilly meets his potential, since he's closer to it.
Philly and LA took that chance last year. I have my doubts that Darcy Regier has the gumption to pull that type of deal off.
