Ryan O'Reilly C COL Jan 30 '79
Avalanche center Ryan O'Reilly says he'll will be a better player next season.
O'Reilly's play has been reasonably good as he has notched 17 points in 25 games since signing an offer sheet with the Calgary Flames that was subsequently matched by the Avs, but he is currently in the midst of a 12-game goal scoring drought. "I thought it felt good for the most part at the start, and then it kind of took a dip and now I can't seem to find the net right now," O'Reilly said. "Obviously, we've needed some goals and then I get a goal lapse. I had a job to step into and didn't do it. It's disappointing. I'm supposed to do the job, and I didn't do the job." Our feelings on O'Reilly haven't changed significantly from what they were before the year. He's a useful player in medium to deep leagues, but far from a fantasy superstar.
