Though with a player of O'Reilly's potential, you have to think the team is wanting to get a player/package back that is equally important to the team's long term success.
There's always a chance that the players, prospects, or picks don't pan out, no matter where they are in their development.
From what I've watched and read about Trouba I would okay with the risk involved. He could turn into a great defensive asset for our team.
More than anyone, I would want to keep O'Reilly, but that's just not seeming like it's going to happen.
