But you know what? That may be the best move Holland's made in a while.
The asking price was a proven roster player, a top prospect and a first-round draft pick.
That's absolutely ridiculous.
O'Reilly has only been in the league a few years and has ONE 55-point season. I wouldn't pay Anaheim those prices for Corey Perry. That price is laughable and Holland showed he's still one of the smartest GM's in sports by saying "no, thanks".
I applaude him for sticking to his guns and getting out of what could've been a horrible trade. Trade a roster piece and what could be a future star, plus a first-rounder, for one promising center? Essentially, you'd be trading three roster-caliber players for one. That's just plain stupid.
Ken Holland, I haven't been very kind to you lately. But this time...darn good work, sir.
