Barrie is a very good prospect, far from a throw in. I wouldn't do this trade as an Avs fan. I don't think it's a particularly good idea for Stars either, since they need that game breaking element down the middle. Benn is a much better fit there, looking at the other centers.

but if I'm not mistaken, O'Reilly played most of the year with Landeskog, who scored 30 goals. Plus Benn has Elite potential, like in the mold of a Malkin. Size, speed, skill. Not saying Benn will score 100 points or be MVP (crossing fingers he does) but he has that potential.
And I am sure none of Benn's success has anything to do with playing with Eriksson while O'Reilly is all Landeskog (who didn't score 30 goals, but who has time to check up on **** like that).
