Sutter traded Leopold and two 2nd round draft picks for Tanguay. It was expensive.

This is important. It would make better sense to go after Stastny, who after a couple of poor seasons could be available and likely not for much given his contract. Offer up Cammalleri as a winger for Duchene and maybe Sherman gets interested. Of course, O'Reilly would have to be signed before Colorado would move a centremen.
