If Gardiner and Rielly are off the table from the Leafs, then ROR is off the table, plain and simple.
I agree in terms of on paper value. One of Rielly or Gardiner straight up for a player like O'Reilly is pretty fair.

On the other hand, Rielly or Gardiner are not the ones holding out here.

Leafs keep assets that are actually playing and developing, while Colorado is sitting on an asset not really gaining much in terms of value and losing some further development.

They can sit on him all they want, I suppose. If they do, he will likely just go back to Europe and wait it out.

At some point, one team will either meet the price or Colorado will have to bring down their price if they want some valuable assets at the very least.
