But assuming there's some interest because they badly need a RH shot who has the ability to score goals, would people pull the trigger on:

Stafford (Sabres retain $1.0m of cap hit for remainder of the deal thru 2014-15)
Sekera
McNabb

for

O'Reilly
Pickard/Aittokallio
I'd take out McNabb and the goalie prospect, maybe. Stafford's had a slow start, but him + Sekera is still 2 good roster pieces, both of which fill a need for COL. I'd maybe add a pick or a lower end prospect to that after removing McNabb, but Sekera + Staff + our most NHL-ready D prospect seems a little steep to me.
