Garrioch Writes that Avs are Quietly Shopping O'Reilly

He indicates that the Avs are asking for a young forward and a second round draft pick.

Considering the Avs publicly indicated two years ago that ROR was one of three players they were building the franchise around (along with Duchene and EJ), I would have to believe that they are looking for a fairly significant young forward in return, likely a center.

Otherwise, you would have to think that a large number of teams would have tried to already finalize a trade with Colorado.

What are his contract demands?

It appears someone like Henrique would fit the bill but not sure I'd want to give Henrique up for O'Reilly if he has insane contract demands or is going to demand a short-term contract so he can hit UFA at first chance.

Getting value for an unsigned player is very difficult.

The other teams either take advantage of you or either gamble but conservatively.

If I were the Avs I wait as teams get more and more desperate in order to get best return, otherwise I let O'Reilly rot at home until he's old enough for UFA.

So according to that, Jaden Schwartz and 2nd round pick could net us RoR?

Negotiations must really not be going well.

It is a definite need, but the Avs forwards have been depleted. They have numerous needs by my estimation. I think Stastny will ultimately be traded as well prior to the summer of 2014.

Yep. I don't buy it for a second, Avs are notorious for keeping everything close to their chest, there's no way Garrioch knows something unless the other side told him at which point PL will probably break off any trade talks.

Generally I would agree with you, but Garrioch nails things ocassionally (Ex. Saying Colorado would acquire Chris Gratton prior to the 2004 trade deadline).

He also broke a couple of Avs FA signings this past offseason, but IMHO there's just no way Avs let this go public.

PS

Let's pretend this is the truth, I don't see a single young forward who would replace Radar, unless they're taking a massive downgrade from him (someone like Burmistrov) and if that's the case only adding a 2nd rounder makes no sense whatsoever.

A forward available? Any player available? Flyers are interested.

Laughton + 2nd rounder.

Obviously, it will be a significant young forward or forward prospect.

Eh, at $5M a year, I'd probably rather stick with Henrique than trade for ROR.

Laughton is a significant young forward prospect. He is 18 and made the Flyers out of camp. Like all other prospects, he has potential to be a really good player.
