No doubt that would have been a lottery pick. Calgary would have still been a borderline playoff team with ROR.
I haven't heard a reason why he would have had to pass through waivers.

But what I'm saying is that Calgary, without O'Reilly, would have given Colorado a higher first-round pick, a third-round pick, and let O'Reilly go to a random team. I guarantee more than a few teams would have put in a claim on him.

And before anyone asks, no, the Hawks would never have wound up with him.
