Has anyone (who considers O'Reilly some potential savior for the Jets top-6) thought about the character issues he brings? Sure he's known as a hard worker on the ice but he has also held out for more than 1/3 of the season now and that clearly trumps his on-ice performance. How do we know he'd be happy as a Jet and wouldn't just do the same thing here? Why would the Jets be any more willing to give him a big contract or guarantee he'd be used in an offensive role, especially for all the talk of giving up Burmistrov?

I fear he's being severely overrated and overpriced, both in terms of character and on-ice ability.
