I fail to see how you think O'Reilly and Gaborik are at all comparable.
O'Reilly is 22, makes less than Gaborik and is still controllable at the end of his contract. All attractive things to a team that is rebuilding (being last in the West).
Gaborik is 31, makes 2.5M more than O'Reilly, and is a UFA at the end of of next season. Why would the Flames want that?
