    He is a great player but I can never forget that drunken tim hortons fiasco, lol

    He will always be the dummy who fled the scene of a drunken wreck days after signing the big bucks with Buffalo.

    I have little to no respect for him.

    Everyone else seems to have moved on. This must go deeper than timbits for you.

    I have a relative who almost died because of a drunk driver

    Drunk drivers are scummy

    Way to miss my point.

    Ryan O'Rielly chose to drive impaired, ignoring the potential harm he could have caused others. I never said he had anything to do with my relative.

    I don't respect him for a choice he made that easily could have harmed an innocent person.

    This is a thread about Ryan O'Reilly. My comments are about him and how I feel about him.

    If he wasn't a millionaire hockey player I can assure you the punishment for his accident would have been much more severe. It irks me that he got a pass for something so blatantly irresponsible.

    I understand the sentiment and I agree that it was incredibly irresponsible on his part.

    My very first comment I conceded that he is a great NHL player. Fantastic in fact. He plays the game the right way.

    I've leaned my seat back really far now in an attempt to avoid shame, just pretend you can no longer see me.

    I admit that I should probably just keep my opinion on the matter to myself. You are right after all, this thread is about his current performance.

    It was never even confirmed that he was the one driving it anyways.

    He's been called a "poor man's Bergeron" for years. I'd say he's closed the gap and may even be even with him now.

    Really? I thought that he was the driver.

    Obviously, that changes everything. Running from the scene isn't too bright but if ROR didn't drive than he certainly goes up a few notches in my book.

    If you want to know who is playing well on St. Louis at any given time this season and the answer has been whoever is playing with O'reilly. He really does make everyone around him better.

    Berube seems to have turned the Blues around now so hopefully O'reilly will get to play some decent rounds in the playoffs this year. You can tell the dude just loves the game.

    Agreed. Can’t build around a PPG center that is probably the top center in winning faceoffs and starts over half his shifts in the defensive zone. League is littered with second liners like that.

    Fantastic center. Still somehow very underrated. If the Blues make the playoffs it'll largely be thanks to him.

    ROR is just so damn good. He plays a sound defensive game, competitive as heck and doesn't make many mistakes - yet able to produce at PPG rate. Very underrated goalscorer.

    Also plays his best hockey when the team is competitive and playing important games. Probably the main reason i thought the team that got him out of Buffalo would fall in love with him.

    It's a shame we don't get to see how good the Sabres would've been now that the culture is much better, with Eichel/ROR/Dahlin as the main core.

    Last year he checked out on the Sabres but this year he's been a legit 1C.

    Almost 21 mins per game (11th in the league by C's). Leads the teams forwards in penalty kill minutes. 50/50 split in offensive and defensive zone starts. And yet 55 points in 54 games. On a pace for 30 goals. Leads the team in takeaways (also top 5 in the league) and has a 3/1 takeaway to giveaway ratio (best in the league). Team has the puck more than not when he's on the ice. Top 5 FO guy in the league.

    He absolutely is a 1C. And a good one too.

    He better be one of the Selke finalists. It should be between him, Crosby, and Mark Stone.

    Untrue, depends on the cop. I was with a buddy and we crashed in the middle of the city, into a median. He was more drunk than I thought and cop told him to call a ride. Exact words, "you're drunk, call a ride and shut up.
