If people here are seriously expecting O'Reilly back with the Avs then they better hope that contract is ~3 million per year. I have a feeling it is more.

Pretty crafty on his/agent's part. I'm sure O'Reilly will enjoy that guaranteed minimum contract amount, wherever that ends up being. Very hard to say how the Avs respond to this.

Fowler, Giordano, Kulikov, Hamonic, M. Staal, Del Zotto, Ekman-Larsson, Hedman, or Gardiner would be a fine basis to a deal, with something added on to the respective side that needs it in certain deals.
Those teams are unlikely to trade those young established players. You are probably looking at some good pieces in return, but being in a bit of a compromised bargaining position (if the Avs were hypothetically trying to move O'Reilly), the likely return would most likely include blue chip prospects/top picks instead.

Just my opinion man.
