2nd 2013

Very rarely does a 21 yr old talent C become available via trade... For years the Flames have struggled down the middle, and probably own the worst 1,2,3 down the middle. Although O'Reilly isn't a natural #1 C (could develop into one..) He's definitely a solid #2 with grit... (ala Kesler, J.Staal, etc.)

Darren Dreger stated the Avs will want a good roster player, and good prospect.. Hence Giordano/Backlund. Acquiring a early 1st 31-40 helps level the value, and makes up for the 2nd lost in the Cammy trade.

This may just fix one problem and create another, but I believe it's worth it for a young/talented C.
Pass would do Gio for ROR but not trading Backlund. Having Backlund and ROR we have a great 1 2 for centermen for a long time.
