Stay away from negotiations and hope that they either overpay the kid, or miss on any trade that they end up making. Best case scenario is that his hold out continues and he misses the entire season.
If Avs ownership understood how valuable this kid actually is, they'd have already signed him. I don't know that they'd ask as much as people think for him.
