I know people are getting silly around here because of the frustration of the situation, but c'mon. Be realistic. There is no way Avs are going to trade for Kulikov.
You don't know if you can sign O'Reilly either. It isn't about the money demands being lower or higher. It is using an asset to improve the team overall.
There was no way that the Avs were going to trade for Varly at one point either, and he was actually threatening to go and stay in Russia. Yet the Avs gave up some good assets to bring him into the fold. Sherman has shown that if likes a player (no idea if he likes Kulikov), he is willing to take a risk.
