This will be his defining move no doubt in my mind, and how he addresses those things will either make or completely derail this rebuild.

I agree that this, along with the EJ trade, will define the rebuild.

I'm concerned though that even if we don't lose Stastny and get a good piece back for O'reilly that we might not be going anywhere if we need to continue to rely on Staz as a core player. I try to stay as objective as possible about his play but I feel like we're running out of reasons for his constant underperformance. I just hope finally changing coaches and getting our transition game going again will help him out.
