Elliott, for all the potential, is still leaning more towards the bust end of the scale right now.

Rangers Get:

Avs Get:
Del Zotto
Kreider or JT Miller

works for me. Would rather have Miller, but would take Kreider.
That would be overpayment. Our top player from last year and top defensive prospect outside of Siemens? Whoa...the Avs better be aiming for a guaranteed top-pairing guy if they're including Elliott in any O'Reilly deal.

If O'Brien were the throw-in, meh, whatever. He wouldn't do much other than help contracts balance out anyway.
