Just my opinion man.
Some of those players like Hedman/Staal, yes I'd agree. O'Reilly wouldn't be traded for picks/prospects. It would more than likely be a hockey trade like the Johnson-Stewart trade. If it came down to picks and prospects I'd bet the Avs would just keep O'Reilly, regardless of how mad they are at him. I'd bet Calgary would look long and hard at something based around Giordano and O'Reilly. Although that has Drury-Morris 2.0 written all over it.
