Stepan has 6 less points than O'Reilly and the same number of goals in 62 less games played. He's had 2 years of 40+ points, O'Reilly has had one. O'Reilly does not have a contract, Stepan does. They are both very responsible defensively. Care to tell me again why we would be adding?

Avs would have to throw in a pick or a depth player, but if Avs fans don't think this is fair value you really need to take the homer goggles off. I understand that this trade would be a swap essentially, but in the case that O'Reilly doesn't want to play for the Avs, it might make sense.

I'm a Rangers fan who believes we need to add if we do Stepan for O'Reilly. O'Reilly is simply a brilliant defensive forward who is also a monster on the forecheck. He also led the league in takeaways last year.

I was on the Bruins board and one of their posters linked to two articles a while back that demonstrated much better than I could do what O'Reilly adds as a player that does not show on the scoresheet. The links are listed below id you are interested. Really interesting reads imo.
Quote:
He does all the little things right, his game is in the details. imo he is way past Kelly in terms of what he brings. Here's some statistical information that helps communicate the value he brings: O'reilly Value

comparing o'reilly to recent Selke winners

he is far closer to bergeron than kelly, i don't think that's even a question. but i guess it is for some of us
That being said, any deal is obviously contingent on his contract demands. Given he is currently injured I do not see anything happening in that regards in the immediate future.

OReilly stepped into a teeeerrible team and did very well. OReilly is more than just responsible defensively and his potential is still untapped.
We basically expect him to turn into Bergeron of Kesler and shouldn't just get rid of him to be rid of him.

Stepan would be a solid return indeed but adding to get him would defeat the point of trading OReilly. We'd be better off waiting this out i think.

Rangers fans in this thread--please stop entertaining Avs delusions. Sather wouldn't touch an RFA hold-out like O'Reilly with a 10 foot pole.

Avs fans, if RO'R has so much apparent value, pay him what he wants and enjoy the bad contract. Positionally, the Rangers don't need him. Contractually, the Rangers don't want him.

Again--Consistency--he ain't got it. For the Avs fans claiming that you "could just see the offense waiting to happen" when he was only putting up totals in the mid 20s, I'll tell you what I DID see last year. I saw a guy who put up a lot more points because he found himself on a line with Landeskog. Until he can show that last season was a product of HIS ability and not Landeskog's nobody is going to give you close to what you want.
Blah blah blah.

Boyle is garbage (outside the pk). Bickell is a ****ing plug. MDZ is the only valuable piece there and me personally. Id take the centre over him any day.

Ps. Settle down champ.

The Avs seem to be doing fine without RoR, it looks like injuries are the problem.

But with JT Miller at 3C I think RoR is less valuable to us, Callahan healthy and Kreider getting his **** together have worked wonders for our forward depth.

How about Skjei+Gilroy for Wilson+3rd? Please take Bickel too. Please.

McDonagh-Girardi
Staal-Del Zotto
Wilson-Stralman
Eminger

Best defense in the East.

No, mostly because the value is wrong.

Slightly because Ryan Wilson is, sadly, our 2nd best defenseman.

And because Ryan Wilson is out with an injured ankle.

Stastny gets a lot of **** from Avs fans, some of it justifiably so. However, he's one hell of a 2nd round pick from a deep draft.

I just consider it quite rich that you would take the angle that McDonagh is vastly more proven when he's not and try to brush that off by sustenance of play while also ignoring the age difference and other factors. You are biased regardless of what delusion you have.
There's no delusion or anything here. McDonagh has played at the same level albeit over a slightly smaller sample size and there's a premium on young top-pairing defenders as compared to young two-way centers.

You can believe whatever you want, but until O'Reilly maintains the same offensive production in whatever relative comparison you can make to McDonagh's defensive ability (honestly, this argument is a joke because we're trying to compare apples to oranges here) there really isn't anything to work with.

McDonagh has played at a higher level than O'Reilly has. You want to avoid this fact? Go right ahead. See if I care. Your accusations of "delusions of grandeur" and whatever other terms you want to use doesn't change this fact.

Nah, if we trade for a Dman it should be an EJ partner, and I dunno about you, but I want to see EJ finally play with someone who he won't have to worry about covering for.

Short answer: O'Reilly is better

Long answer? I think you already know it, considering how you called O'reilly's 55 point season a "40+" one and used career points even though Stepan has had an extra year of development.

I see no point in trading Stepan who is on an ELC for a holdout who is him in 2-3 years. They're not that different.

Stepan will play elite defense at the center position? Yeah I don't think so.

I'm not sure a response is even needed in this thread, O'Reilly is being underrated when his defensive game is compared to Zajac. Meanwhile people honestly think Stepan is in his league? He's a cut above Stepan offensively so far and would probably find himself as the best defensive player on the Rags roster, at the very least on par either Cally, whom he'd have phenomenal chemistry with given his similarities to Landeskog.


It's simply a joke that O'Reilly is unproven, didn't play like a #1 center (seriously, he played other team's top lines AND out performed them, is that not a #1 center? He out performed Datsyuk defensively going head to head) and is inconsistent but McD is somehow not.

If you value McD as a young top pairing defender, you can excuse the Avs for valuing O'Reilly as a young future 1b center. We're not paying him because Duchy took a discount and it's his 2nd contract, blame that jerk Meehan for him holding out.

Keep Barrie and see what he's got down the road, Elliott is promising too. We can find a better offer elsewhere.

Also, heck no to the OP. O'Reilly for Del Zotto is probably fair, including Barrie and Aitto for Boyle and Bickel is terrible on our part. If Hunwick can undress you, you're not NHL material.
lol wut? So your saying you know nothing of Del Zotto outside of his highlights and the few Avs v Rangers game. Got it.

You care, which is why you keep trying to twist it so that you can claim your player is more proven. If you want to cite sample size then your position is bunk. End of story.

No, but there's a good chance that he'll put up more points.

No, I actually don't care and I'm not twisting anything. What you're doing is just saying that I'm twisting things because you really have no argument, that's why McDonagh finished as high as he did in the Norris Voting in only his 2nd season. It took O'Reilly THREE seasons to crack the top-20 in Selke Voting.

Keep grasping at straws. You look more and more ridiculous with each post.

This. ^

Stepan can produce 50-60 pts in an 82-game season. He is also very good defensively, although I will admit RoR is a step above him. If Step was on the 1st line with Nash and Gaborik, 60-70 points isn't too much of a stretch.

It's a misconception that he spent his icetime with Gabs last season. His linemates were usually Anisimov, Callahan, Hagelin, Dubinsky who scored 2 times per month, and sometimes even Brandon Prust.

Stepan is better offensively, is very good defensively but RoR is better without the puck

Not getting into this argument, just saying that what you posted completely ignores the fact that McDonagh is 2 years older than O'Reilly when using the 'three vs two season argument' which is completely pointless argument anyways.

If you're implying RoR had better linemates, that's simply wrong. Landeskog and Callahan are very much comparable, and Downie who can be compared to Anisimov or Dubinsky for offensive production.

Don't forget he spent 15-20 games with the blackhole known as Winnik, then he and Landeskog carried Hejduk for half the season during his 1 goal in 35 some odd games.

The amount of credit being taken from Ryan for his offensive success is astounding, even by our own GM.

But how is Stepan better offensively if O'Reilly scored more than him last season? And what's your basis for thinking Stepan can get 60-70 points but O'Reilly can't?

No real argument? Grasping at straws? I only entered in the conversation to note how critically flawed the Rangers fans' argument was.

What would I be arguing for or against otherwise? I don't care about defending O'Reilly, so your post in general is a head scratcher; maybe you should stop projecting other posters on me just because your sample size verdict doesn't hold up.

Is downside good to use for the comparison anyway? It was Winnik until the trade deadline
