couldnt afford 2nd t

This cost way too much. The Blues have done great work to get what they have for Tarasenko and O'Reilly. This was supposed to be a lean trade deadline where trades are difficult to make. We'll see if that prediction falls flat. I suspect the teams who dealt players early like Vancouver and St.Louis will come out better, but we'll see. I figured O'Reilly would not get a 1st based on his current level of play, I was dead wrong.
They paid based off reputation. If they get the ROR from the Blues playoff run, this is a steal. Big risk to take with how he is playing this season. It makes sense for the Leafs to do something though. Matthews NMC kicks in on July 1st. So you have to figure with him still unsigned, this could be their last or second last run with him.
