For me personally, I'd say $4M on a 2 or 3 year deal would be my max. $4.5M on a 4 or 6 plus year, but I wouldn't be happy with it. Not really interested in a five year that takes him right up to his UFA age, unless it's $3.5M or less, but I don't think O'Reilly does that number for that long.

An established scoring D, with at least an average defensive game that allows him to play on the top pairing with EJ, is what the Avs need. There aren't a whole lot of D available out there though that would make the Avs very interested, if they're giving him up in return. That's probably why they may be reconsidering keeping O'Reilly.
