As each day passes, the more likely this ends in the Avs trading O'Reilly.
This is the feeling that I am getting as well, this feels like an accelerated Jordan Staal situation. O'Reilly wants to play somewhere where he is guaranteed a top-6 spot (much like how Varlamov wanted to play as a number one when we got him).

I've said it before, I think we've already seen the last of O'Reilly in an Avs jersey. However, I think the Avs will hold onto his rights until either the Avs hit a big losing streak, the trade deadline or the draft, before they use him to get an asset that they can live with.
