Long story short I talked to my friends (one Colorado, one New Jersey) and they said they'd both do this trade:

To COL:
Larsson
Butler

To NJD:
O'Rielly
Jones (Off to a slow start 5pts, -9 through 16 games but has potential to score 25-30 IMO)
Conditional 2013 1st round pick, if O'Rielly doesn't resign.

Why Colorado does this:
O'Rielly isn't signing in Colorado, and they need a d-man bad. Larsson is a franchise dman who can help out on a very thin blue line. Yes I know Colorado wants a roster player, pick and prospect, but they get a franchise blue liner which, is something they could use. Plus they are missing Erik Johnson who is out with a concussion.

Why New Jersey does this:
They need offfense, they are 21st (?) in goals for, and it doesnt help out that Zubrus is out. This move helps out their offense big time. They do lose Larsson, but they do get a young O'Rielly back.

Line ups (No clue what they look like, just something I threw together with websites i found):

COL:
Landeskog - Stastny - Parenteau
Mcginn - Duchene - Hejduk
Mcleod - MItchell - Kobasew
Bordeleau - Oliver - Butler

Hejda - Larsson
O'Byrne - Hunwick
O'Brien - Barrie
Zannon

Varlamov
Giguere

NJD:
Kovalchuk - Zajac -Clarkson
Eilias - O'Rielly - Jones (assuming he picks up his game)
Ponikarovsky -Henrique - Gionta
Bernier - Matteau - Barch

Salvador - Greene
Zidlicky - Volchenkov
Fayne - Tallinder

Hedberg
Other temporary goalie, while Brodeur is injured.

Anyways there she is. Don't flame, it's 1:30 am where I am, and I've been up since 6am, because of uni, and this seems like a good idea in my half awake state. Maybe throw in some picks here and there? I don't know, Im too tired to add them right now...

I can't see NJ doing this. Larsson is their best (Volchenkov could be argued too I guess) d-man and is doing well for being a very young player (d-men usually peak later than forwards). O'Rielly isn't signed yet either, so the value isn't quite even. A conditional first (O'Rielly signing) would have to go to NJ to give them some sort of security.

Edit: Doesn't Colorado also have Erik Johnson? A Larsson- Johnson pairing would be sick.

Okay thanks, fair enough. I'll add that in.
I was just thinking that New Jersey could use the offense, and while it is a steep price in Larsson, they do get a young, proven forward in O'Rielly.

I think NJD would be stupid to give up Larsson honestly, and they don't need centers. Zajac & Henrique are great in the top 6.

I don't see NJD doing this with an aging D core.

I think the Devils would be better off either keeping Larsson or trading him for a goalie.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I think Larsson > O'Reilly in the long run for NJ.
