Given Myers' resurgence of late, I think it's a fair poll.

Right now Zadorov and Ristolainen are still question marks so I wouldn't consider defence a strength at the NHL level. Since we are so early into the rebuild I would rather wait to see what we got in Grigo, Girgs, Armia, Larsson and others before making a big move like this.

The way the NHL is trending you are going to be in good number of games scoring 2-3 goals, if you have an incredible D and good goaltending you are going to come out on top alot of the time. If Myers, Ristolainen and Zadorov end up to what people think they can then I build the defence around them for the long term.
Building from the D out is fine by me. Adding a player of O'Reilly's ilk is hard to pass on though.
