The Avs have to either wait for the homerun offer in order to trade him, or let him rot back in Ontario missing out on playing NHL hockey.

Also, your "bad deal" of MDZ + a high end prospect was likely already rejected by Sather, I recall an article that stated Sather turned it down. Also, Sather probably wants no part of O'Reilly because he'll just try to give him a bridge deal, its the way Sather is with RFA's.

Personally I hope O'Reilly rots back home for as long as possible before finally giving in. Signs the deal, comes to practice and on the first day, scraps with Duchene. Second day, scraps with Landeskog. Third day, Scraps with Bordeleau. Then he'll have earned the respect of the locker-room lol..... Maybe on 1st game ask him to scrap the opposition's heavyweight too
The rumored deal was MDZ + Kreider/Miller... high end prospect can mean many things. IMO Skej, St. Croix, and Fasth all have real good potential, but less value than their top prospects. MDZ + Fasth wouldn't be a good deal for ROR, but better than getting nothing.

People's emotions of ROR still holding out are getting the best of them. It is never good to let a very valuable asset rot and lose value.
