I can't see the Avs trading Stastny if O'Reilly can't be signed..then you have Duchene as the only top 6 center.
Everyone has their panties in a bunch because of our history with holdouts. While that's a somewhat relevant fear, every player is a little different.

The fact that they matched instantly has to say something as well. I mean hours, not a day or two even.

Stastny can just say no and walk in 14-15. ROR won his fight with management and forced their hand. They won't like it, but I don't think they swallow the poison pill.
Colorado will know Stastny AND O'Reilly's opinions on signing extensions THIS YEAR after July 1st or even before hand if they talk. Plenty of time to make the decision on who to move and or as to if they can keep both.

Hell they can know Stastny, O'Reilly, Duchene, Landeskog, and Varly's openness to extensions.
