There is not a doubt in my mind that O'Reilly would be the Jets most effective forward right now.

Don't get me wrong, he's never going to lead the league on scoring, but that's not the point. He's in the mould of Patrice Bergeron and has the potential to be just as good.
I have seen ROR play. And my point of view is not solely on stats, it's on the idea that the Jets need to give not only a plus on Little (which I can agree to based on what I mentioned earlier about age and "potential"), but that the Jets need to give a mega premium plus on Little (a la Trouba, Scheifele, etc).

ROR is not that far ahead of Little to warrant that.
