I don't think we'd be "lucky" to just get Trouba for O'Reilly. Trouba is a VERY good prospect, but he's just that, a prospect. O'Reilly has 3 season of NHL hockey under his belt, he has improved areas of his game each season, so right now we don't know what his ceiling is.

Prospects are nice and great, but sometimes they don't pan out, I'm very confident that nearly all GM's will take Young, Proven NHLers over Prospects (keep in mind that O'Reilly is only 21/22 years old)
