Sure the Flames are weak at center, but it's not like O'Reilly's being buried in Colorado, and in coming to Calgary, he would have produced significantly more than the 8 points he already has. Would an extra 8 points or so make that much of a difference to a last place team in the Western conference? Would his superb defensive play solve all the other issues in Calgary single handedly? Because it certainly hasn't made much of a difference on the other last place team there.
he's made our pp significantly better, but the ice time taken away from duchene doesnt help, and even he isn't enough to help our defense, our team has no fight to them, i would think if he was the guy and only the guy he would flourish as in if he were playing with the flames now.

and he is buried splitting time he wouldn't on the flames with duchene and stastny.
