So, here's the question; is there any conceivable manner in which Phoenix could potentially acquire O'Reilly without moving core roster players critical to our efforts this season? Is there a package that could potentially entice Colorado that consists mostly of futures? Something based around Brandon Gormley with a little extra added in? Maybe Rundblad with more than a little extra added in? I can't really see Colorado going for it. I mean, these are top notch prospects, but as Bender has pointed out, they are just that.
I'd say no, Yandle would be the piece COL would want. We are trying to compete now so a package of futures wouldn't exactly fit our needs. Both players being spoke of are core 'type' players... What makes Colorado and Phoenix a good fit, is that we both have enough 'core' depth at those positions to make a swap. As well as the swap filling holes that each team currently has.
