I hate to put O'Reilly on this list but I definitely feel like he will fizzle out.
Not because he's going to remember who he is or anything like that; Ryan O'Reilly has been one of the best players on the Avalanche since the start of the season and is second on the team in assists right now with 10.
What I think is going to cause O'Reilly to fizzle is Joe Sacco.
Up until about a couple of games ago, O'Reilly was playing on a line with Daniel Winnik and Gabriel Landeskog, and this line was dominant.
They were scoring and creating great shifts that yielded great scoring chances and energy for their team. In fact, this line was the best and most consistent line that the Avalanche had all season.
It has now been split up.
O'Reilly will likely fizzle a bit in his numbers because Joe Sacco panics too quickly and will continue to juggle lines all over the place, even when things are working, and the chemistry will go completely away from this team.
O'Reilly will always work hard and be impressive on the ice, but his numbers will cool off if Sacco remains coach of this team.
