Exactly this. This is a perfect basis to a deal.

Yeah, because O'Reilly potentially not playing in the NHL till he is 27 means the ball is in his court. Colorado will sit on him till someone pays the price they want.

I think
would be a good basis. I think Caps would have to add a little. How about a 2nd rounder?
Not as interested in Carlson. Barrie also isn't going to be moved. He is playing 22+ minutes now and starting to produce some points.

I'd hesitantly trade Elliott. He doesn't look great right now, but last season he was pretty awesome offensively. He has a great wrist shot that I would hate to see lighting it up another team's powerplay. If Alzner was the one coming back then I would trade him.
