Colorado executive vice president and GM Joe Sakic shrugged off trade rumors involving Ryan O'Reilly.

"I know there are rumors out there. I saw them the last couple of days, but I can tell you that all the rumors come from Toronto, they don't come from us," Sakic said. "What we are going to do is see where our team is down the stretch. He's a core guy. We have him under contract for another year. Those decisions don't have to be made right now. And Ryan, he had a tough start along with our other guys, but he's been much better in the last few weeks as well, and we're happy with the direction him and those other guys are going right now." The Avalanche still feel they can push for the playoffs and their position in the standings could influence the decision of what to do with O'Reilly.
