I believe he is trying to find at what point Avs fans will say they would not match an OF on O'Reilly. Right now he thinks that at around at 6+ million the Avs will not match it. The compensation for that is 2 1sts+2nd+3rd. He has convinced himself that therefore his value to us is 2 1sts+2nd+3rd, while completely ignoring the contract. He will then offer an equivalent package(in his mind) to the picks(something like Kadri+) And if Avs fans say no, he will say he O'Reilly's value to us is 2 1sts+2nd+3rd, and that what he is offering is in line with how we value him.

He tried the identical thing with Duchene.
