Which would probably mean adding that 1st round pick, at the very least in order to make Colorado consider it.
Especially when nothing we are getting back is proven AT ALL, beyond a 3rd/4th line center. Gormley is a fantasy O'Reilly is real... Big difference there.
Ryan O'Reilly is a top 6 center in the KHL right now. In the NHL he is an unsigned RFA holding out after 1 good season. Temper your expectations. He's also a luxury for Colorado. If they were offered a solid package that contained a blue chip D, they should take it.
