O'Reilly is only, what, 22? It's not like Calgary is moving assets for a guy on the down slope of his career. I'd be pretty confident that O'Reilly is a better player than whoever they would take with that 1st round pick; assuming for whatever reason it doesn't end up being the #1 Overall. 3rd round is even more of a crap shoot.
O'Reilly certainly isn't high end, but he's a quality player at an ideal age. Potential contract issues aside, I'd move what the Flames did for him without hesitation.
