Steve Downie's Injury May Put Pressure on Avalanche to Sign O'Reilly

Good question. I would say, if it doesn’t put any pressure on the Avs to sign O’Reilly, something is wrong with them. It should. As you may have heard by now, Steve Downie is done for the season already with a torn ACL. Brad Malone has been called up from Lake Erie, but Chuck Kobasew is the man who likely will fill Downie’s spot in the lineup for now. (I’ve been tough on Kobasew before, probably a little unfair even. So I’ll keep a wide-open mind on his play going forward).
