While some of the packages thrown about over the past few days are nice to think about, I'm not really sure that we can get much more than a guy like MDZ for O'reilly right now. Which is why whatever return we end up getting for him will be disappointing.

MDZ is a good player, I'd be happy to have him on the Avs, but he never stands out to me in a "best player on the ice" kind of way the way O'reilly often did last season.

That said the O'reilly camp seem incapable of behaving rationally and so I don't think we can really maintain any hope of re-signing him. And if he's going to have crazy contract demands for any new team, good luck asking a king's ransom for him.
