I think O'Reilly is on a two-way this year, and a one way next year. This may scare teams away a bit? Unless he can prove in the last half of the season that he is capable of consistent play at the NHL level, it could be a deterent.
Avs will try to make it work. We really do not have any offensive prospect right now beside Hensick.
True, but he might be one of those guys who needs a change of scenery to kick him in the pants. I think a O'Reilly + Hamhuis package would be attractive to Colorado.
I believe Svatos needs a change in scenary as well. O'Reilly and Hamhuis should help us.
