    At some point the Avs being as decimated by injuries as they are, will have to sign ROR or look at trading him one would have to think? So the question then becomes what is he realistically worth?

      tough one. You have to value him at a young 2nd line center. While he could end up being a career 3rd liner Colorado isn’t going to accept a return that low.

      Since Colorado needs bodies for the Avalanche, the return will likely be in the neighborhood of a 2nd line forward and a pick. The pick can be anywhere from a 1st to a 3rd depending on the player returned.

      Clowe + 2nd?
      Ryder + 1st?
      Morrow + 3rd?

      Just throwing those out there, I don’t actually think those teams will pay that for O’Reilly for different reasons but I suspect that is approximately what Colorado wants for him.

    Are at least two of those guys UFA after this year? I think you might be shocked when he brings more. For that return they are alomost better off caving and getting him signed, IMO.
