From the wording of the rule I think the Flames would have won if they fought it anyway.

"All Players on a Club’s Reserve List and Restricted Free Agent List will be exempt from the application of CBA 13.23 Waivers in the case of a mid-season signing.

For further clarity, if Club A trades such a Player to Club B and Club B signs the Player to an SPC, such Player will be exempt from the application of CBA 13.23."

O'Reilly was on a Club's Restricted Free Agent list and will be exempt in the case if a mid-season signing. It doesn't say the signing has to be with the club who is a restricted free agent with.

At the very least its ambiguous enough for the league to have voided the whole offer sheet.
