Not sure if the NHL would step in and stop it or not, i.e. Columbus trading their 1st and a prospect for Colorado's 5th round pick, then Colorado would agree not to match the O'Reilly offer sheet.
Columbus would be stupid to trade that 1st rounder.

The Avs probably don't need much to be convinced to not match. Maybe a third rounder.
