According to Bruce Garrioch of the ottawa sun the Avs have held talks with the Penguins for a possible Ryan O'Rielly trade.
interesting to see that we are one of a handful of teams inquiring about him, seeing as hes a center. does anyone know if he plays wing?
apparently the asking price is a roster player, prospect and draft pick
According to Bruce Garrioch of The Ottawa Sun, the Avalanche have already been in contact with several teams about trading the center away and what the team is asking for in return:
But if the Senators are going to make a deal for O’Reilly, Murray would be required to give up more than he’s prepared to give. The Avs are looking for a roster player who can help right now, a prospect and a draft pick.
Expect O’Reilly to land somewhere as the Avs try to clear up this sour relationship. The Leafs, Bruins, Rangers and Penguins have all held talks with Sherman, who would like to send him to an eastern conference team.
He is costly and quite frankly doesn't solve the issue of a RH shot on the off wing. Bennett will take time to adjust and this may not be a season for so many rookie changes. A shorten schedule with a larger impact for errors has to be played with points being so critical to make the playoffs. I like Bortuzzo and Dupres and Bennett but the Pens need a winger for Crosby.
