Ryan O'Reilly

Following the end of the regular season, Elliotte Friedman wrote at CBC, that when the Rangers were engaging the Colorado Avalanche in trade talks about Ryan O'Reilly, the Avs asked for Derek Stepan.

Friedman said that with the regular season that he had, it's understandable why the Avs wanted Stepan. Friedman adds "Stepan took a major leap this year."

On Saturday, Elliotte Friedman reported on HNIC that the Rangers and Avalanche had discussed the parameters of a deal that would include unsigned RFA Ryan O'Reilly and Michael Del Zotto.

Today, in 30 Thoughts, Friedman writes a bit more about the situation.

Friedman notes while he thought the two teams had discussed Derek Stepan, along with Del Zotto, that two sides HAVE NOT discussed Stepan at all.

9:50PM: Friedman's exact words on Hot Stove Tonight were:

I believe that this week the Avalanche and the New York Rangers went down the road to see what a deal would look like. They talked about Ryan O'Reilly and one of Colorado's defensemen for a package that I believe would have included Michael Del Zotto, a player that the Avalanche really like. As Colorado started asking for more and more the Rangers pulled back and said 'no.' So that is off right now.
Glenn Healy says that the Avs are looking for a "Kings Ransom," two players, a prospect and a high draft pick. He adds that they aren't going to get that and instead teams may start putting offer sheets out to him.

Friedman says that some people believe O'Reilly is a number one center and Healy says that if that draft was done over again, John Tavares would go first and that O'Reilly would go second.

On TSN, the panel was asked which team they thought Colorado holdout Ryan O'Reilly could be traded.

Aaron Ward picked the Rangers and said "It will be interesting to see what role the cap plays for the NY Rangers since they still need to sign Stepan, Hagelin and McDonagh. He would be a great second line center and compliment to Nash. It may involve a more elaborate deal both ways with more players."

Darren Pang says that he would be perfect for Toronto and Bob McKenzie said that Ottawa has the assets to make a deal.
