Seriously don't understand what the Flames management is thinking. With a high pick in a deep draft and O'Reilly's salary going forward, this will probably end up being very similar to the Kessel deal. Salary-wise, they must have another deal ready to go. Maybe Iggy. Doubt they can afford to bring him back next year.
Terrible asset management by that franchise. O'Reilly is definitely an upgrade on what they have at centre, but he's still just a 2nd line guy.

If the plan is to get O'Reilly and stockpile other picks by trading veterans like Iginla, Kipper and J-Bouw, then sure. But we have no reason to believe they'd ever do that.
