You misunderstood me...I didn't say we don't have pieces Colorado would want, I said we don't have the salary to move to offset O'Reilly.

Okposo and Grabner make $4M combined this year, Nino and Nelson make peanuts in the minors. O'Reilly is looking for $5-6M. So, any trade for O'Reilly would be adding salary (unless Streit was involved, but I highly doubt Colorado would take a pending UFA as a main piece of the trade).

I highly doubt that Garth has the green light to add millions in salary for this season.
