Given his maddeningly inconsistent play I don't see how Myers is more valuable than Radar (a pretty good 21 year old playmaking center who led the league in takeaways and is a briliant defensive forward in the mold of Patrice Bergeron) in any aspect of the game of hockey.
Ok, now that you have shown your love for O'Reilly (which I have too, love the guy to death), consider the fact that trading O'Reilly for 6'8, 220lb defenceman who's ammassed 109 points in 221 career games so far, including his 48 point rookie season, which was only 7 less than O'Reilly's career high, and I think the Avs take this deal and run. Yes O'Reilly is a fantastic player and most likely will be a great two way player for the rest of his career, but a player like Myers does not come along often, with his size and skill
