Jets interested in O'Reilly? UPDATE: CGY Offer sheet COL matches

-- The Jets continue to be linked to trade rumours involving holdout Colorado Avalanche centre Ryan O'Reilly, who is reportedly seeking a five-year deal worth $4.5 million per season. Question: How much, if at all, does the rantings of O'Reilly's dad -- Brian, who is a life coach and has been very vocal during his son's divorce from the Avs -- influence any trade talks?
O'Reilly put up 55 points last year, is just 22 and finished fourth in voting for the Selke Trophy. He'd look great in Jets colours, but at what cost to the current roster and financially?

Apologies if this has been mentioned on here.
Ed Tait is usually a good source.

If it's true, I don't get this deal. We would have to give up something big in return and I don't know what that would be.
