Avs May Have Asked for Miller or Kreider Along With Del Zotto for O’Reilly

Yesterday, I posted a report that the Colorado Avalanche had talked to the Rangers about a trade including Michael Del Zotto and more for Ryan O'Reilly.

Well, Adrian Dater at the Denver Post now says the "more" was likely J.T. Miller or Chris Kreider.

…LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Do I even need to comment on this ridiculousness? If Colorado really thinks O'Reilly is worth Del Zotto and Kreider, you'd think they'd have no problem paying him the $5 million per he's demanding. I can't even imagine how quickly Sather hung up the phone on Avs GM Greg Sherman.

…although, after hearing this news, you have to wonder if the reason the Rangers recalled Kreider on Saturday after re-assigning him the night before might have been because this trade was close. Things that make you go hmmmmmmm.
