The logic is, let Reilly develop in the CHL while the Leafs tank one more year and walk away with one of Mackinnon, Barkov, Monahan, Lindholm, etc.
Obviously value-wise it's bad for the Avs, but it doesn't make much sense for the Leafs to go about their rebuild like this. Besides, I don't think Duchene is the type of center they need.
