If I was an Avs GM, I personally would sign O'Reilly to as fair a contract as the team would get, and not trade him. Selling low is generally NEVER a good idea unless it's your only option.
Yeah us Avs fans would never be able to understand this....

Wait.... isn't this about us shipping out a defenseman for winger help? How did this become an O'Reilly thread? Cmonnnnnnnnn
