There is no way, I mean NO WAY, the leafs trade Morgan Rielly for O'Reilly in a package let alone straight up, especially with the contract situation between the Avs and O'Reilly. Rielly is a dynamic player with a special skillset who will probably be an elite offensive d-men in the league one day.
ROR's a young player who has had one good year and is asking way too much for it. Avs management are smart enough to realize that and I don't think other managements in the league, especially the leafs, are going to overpay a #1C price tag for someone who appears to be a very good/great #2/3C.
I personally don't think the upgrade over a Bozak, who has been great this year, is worth a prospect of Morgan's caliber. Leaf management are extremely high on Morgan, for good reason, and I don't think he's going anywhere unless it's an offer they have to make; I don't think O'Reilly is one of those offers, even less so when you factor the circumstance surround his contract negotiations.
