I feel like this in an oppurtunity to get one of those types of players, with an asset that either no longer wants to play with the Avalanche, or has simply priced himself out of the Avs' plans. Either way, he is a high value player that could be turned into something that this team desperately requires.
I'm starting to think that's where we may be at. RoR probably wants to play where he's a top center. He's not guaranteed that with the Avs & knows it. Otherwise, I bet he would have signed a deal by now. So, the next step may very well be a trade where the Avs try and get something they desperately need; a top 2 defenseman.

As each day passes, the more likely this ends in the Avs trading O'Reilly.
