If chiarelli offered Marchand,Kelly,Bart, Koko and 2nd plus another pick I wouldn't trade ROR. The conversation starts with Hamiliton.

Random option although I think he's done:

Giordano would cost the most, I'd imagine. I looked at the teams struggling and for left-handed defensemen either 30 or older who can move the puck well.
Ehrhoff, Timonen, and Campbell are the only ones I like that could be available. I don't think Giordano or Gonchar is available, and Streit's contract is too risky for my liking.

WOW Oilers finally make a splash, definitely a step in the right direction. Big time franchise altering trade.

Boston fans are going to go crazy if they see this post, but a signed ROR is worth Dougie Hamilton IMO.

ROR as a RFA is worth Hamilton... a signed ROR is worth more than just Hamilton.

Let them go crazy, Ryan isn't going anywhere.

Lol didn't the Oilers trade their 4th rounder last year for him?

They were at 49 contracts, so it's possible they create room for a further move.

I don't get any star vibe when I see Hamilton. Perhaps he just needs to grow into his frame to start asserting himself. Not that O'Reilly has any star vibe either, of course.

They can keep their picks and their pet rat. O'Reilly is going nowhere.

Anyone know what's going on over on the Boston board right now? ROR's qualifying offer has to be 6.5m+10%? His QO has to be over 7m? O'Reilly apparently wants to play for the Bruins? I don't even know where that stuff is coming from.

The 10% rule only applies for contracts below $3.5M or even something much lower like $1.5M. I can't recall which. It doesn't apply for O'Reilly either way.

The O'Reilly - Boston thing is because someone from their board asked him if the would like to play for Boston when he was practicing with the London Knights when he didn't have a contract and I guess he politely said he wouldn't mind and that somehow has resulted in their board believing O'Reilly's life long dream is to be a Bruin. Just like Sakic dreamed of playing for Canucks, I guess.

With the way things are going on the ice, Avs will have a tough decision to make if Stastny does not want to re-sign.

1) Keep him as a "rental" and let him walk this summer. Reward the team for playing well by maximizing their chances of making the playoffs.
2) Trade him at deadline to get some asset in return for a pending UFA because you can't let premium assets go for nothing.

Tough choice. I used to be more in favor of the latter but I'm starting to think perhaps keeping him would be the right thing to do.

Again, disregard that post. I misunderstood what they were talking about--for some reason I didn't read that they were trading for O'Reilly.

If we have no chance at all signing him, he has to be traded. We can't lose him for nothing. That's my opinion.

I would have said option 2 but if there is a realistic chance at playoffs they can't punt that away either. It is going to be a tough call. Hopefully Staz and Sakic have a good honest convo about the future. As long as they are honest I'm confident the Avs will make the right decision either way.

We should probably know well before the deadline on where the team stands with Stastny. A contract extension should be fairly easy to reach provided both sides want the other.

This, if we don't have a firm idea of what the future holds for Stastny come the deadline, that'll be a huge failure by Sakic. We need to either have Staz re-signed, know he's walking, or have an extension agreed on in principle, by the time the deadline arrives.
