I don't know.

Stastny at 6.6 or O'Reilly at 6.5

I guess they have about a year to prove who is more worth the money.

The problem is that, even if O'Reilly proves to be the better value, the Avs might still trade him instead of Stastny. They are known to ship out holdouts at the first opportunity.

EDIT: Even if ROR signs an extension, he could still be traded. If Avs mgmt can't get over the holdout, they'll extend him and trade him anyway. He'd be easier to trade and more valuable if signed.

Most people know more than they think they do, and think they know more than they do.
