I am sure many teams will love having the 50 point, perennial Selke candidate guy down the middle for them. You win Stanley Cups with players like Ryan O'Reilly.
Funny enough fans felt that way the second this whole contract issue came up. If I was a betting man I would say if you asked them say last April about ROR they would be saying he's untouchable. It's really sad how fast fans turn on a player they loved just a few months ago.
