Ryan O'Reilly was an instrumental player during his time in St. Louis, serving as a driving force for the Blues. Despite his status as the team captain, however, it became clear that he was not viewed as a crucial component of the Blues' future plans, given the direction they were heading.

Toronto recognized an opportunity and acquired O'Reilly, even though he was experiencing a down year with the Blues. The Maple Leafs saw him as a skilled two-way forward who could add depth scoring and leadership to an organization that had been lacking in those areas for some time.
In addition to his impressive track record on the ice, O'Reilly's leadership and experience were highly sought after by the Maple Leafs. They believed that his presence would have a positive impact on the team's younger players, and would help to create a culture of accountability and hard work within the organization.
O'Reilly who is a pending UFA at seasons end, spoke with Luke Fox and talked about the possibility of re-signing with the Maple Leafs after this season:
It's impressive. I always knew there was lots of staff here and resources. Getting here and seeing it firsthand, it's at first a little overwhelming. Once you kind of get a handle and get to know everyone, it's pretty amazing, the help that you have to assist your play. Like myself coming back from injury and just every facet of your meals to everything. It's just so elite and above everything I've seen before.

Yeah. Obviously, yeah, that's for sure. We got playoffs still to come, but, yeah, there's not a bad thing I can say for this organization. They do everything the right way, and if something doesn't work here, they're changing, right? They're always looking at ways to get better. And that's the reason why it is such an amazing franchise.
