I suppose if the Avs were shopping O'Reilly that this deal wouldn't be so bad, but it's still not great from the Avs perspective. Gustavsson has proven to be very inconsistent in Toronto, and the Avalanche's defense is much worse than theirs.
i see your point about different types of players, i still think monster is a serviceable backup for a team, would the avs be more interested in another of leafs defensemen to make the deal work. i put gunner as komi sucks and he is overpaid. maybe beauchimen?
