I honestly don't think you can get that return. In any case, Gardiner and O'Reilly value's are similar but if Avs don't feel he fills their needs then so be it.
Since the Chris Drury situation is vaguely similar to this one, his return:

Drury and Stephane Yelle returns Derek Morris, Dean McAmmond and Jeff Shantz. Since McAmmond and Shantz' net worth was less than worthless you have to ask yourself: Which player in the NHL today is comparable to Morris in 2002? That's what O'Reilly could be fetching.
