I don't think we're gonna see O'Reilly traded until at least around the trade deadline.

It seems like the way the Avs work, and probably a lot of teams for that matter, is they lay the ground work and see what they can get early in the season, and then if they don't get the slam dunk right off the bat, they see where things stand near the deadline.

I would imagine the same will happen with O'Reilly. They may or may not have tried to go after the Yandle, or the Courturier, or the MDZ+ and didn't have an overly willing parnter, so they backed off a bit and are waiting to see how things change. Worse comes to worse, they probably hope a similar deal may still be on the table later on.

Kinda like the Nash deal. Maybe we end up seeing a MDZ and Miller for O'Reilly and O'Byrne type deal near the deadline, or some other variance with NYR or another team at or around the draft. I think it's gonna be a while boys and girls before we get this resolved.
