The Avs probably want to keep Duchene-O'Reilly in place for a long time, and move Stastny in the near future for defensive help. But they don't want to give ROR five years, knowing he'd likely go to UFA and possibly (probably?) leave, thereby only giving them five more years of Duchene-O'Reilly.

Tough predicament. But I don't know Ennis makes much sense for the Avs, unless we're also throwing them someone like Girgensons who they can groom to be the next ROR.
