Elliotte Friedman was on Calgary’s Sportsnet 960 on Monday morning.
As part of a discussion on Colorado Avalanche trade potential:
“The other thing I kind of got a bit of a handle on yesterday was I think for a little while before they traded Ryan O’Reilly, the Maple Leafs and the Avalanche talked about an O’Reilly for Jake Gardiner-type deal with other parts, but they could never get it done.
“So I don’t know if that’s something the Avalanche will try to revisit or not – and the Maple Leafs will try to revisit. I’ve got no evidence that they have. I don’t know if there’s anything like that, but I know that that’s a player that Colorado’s had some interest in the past.”
