Will O'Reilly even be a part of the team again? Once some of those questions are answered, then the Avs can look to cash in one of their centers for help elsewhere. But to blow that up at this point would be a mistake.
You can have all the strength at center, you can have all the depth up front, even star wingers to play with solid centers, but if you have crappy d core you aren't going anywhere, just ask the Caps, or Oilers etc..

The real successful team is built from goalie, to D, then forwards.
