I don't think Burmistrov for O'Reilly would be a starting point that would interest the Avs. If they have to trade him he'll be going for a young defenceman that's already playing top 4 minutes in the NHL and still has the potential to be a #1 or #2 guy.
That's not exactly hard to do considering that Stastny and Duchene both played terribly. I don't get why you would trade two valuable assets for ROR whe he's not that much better then Burmi anyways.
