Avalanche match Calgary's Offer Sheet for ROR

Colorado has already matched the offer sheet on O'Reilly. Wow.

Avs have matched the O'Reilly offer sheet.
Wow, already??

Matching quickly is also big for the Avs because they can’t trade O’Reilly for a calendar year, and this is right around deadline time.

BREAKING: @Avalanche announced tonight that the team has matched the Calgary Flames’ offer sheet for forward Ryan O’Reilly.

Juxtaposer 02-28-2013 08:23 PM

Done and done. Good for the Avs.

Nuckles 02-28-2013 08:23 PM

lol, that was fast

bacardimayne 02-28-2013 08:23 PM

Well at least that's over quickly.

S E P H 02-28-2013 08:23 PM

Goes to show how much they value this kid.

MillarWithASave 02-28-2013 08:23 PM

That was fast, and not very surprised.

Aceonfire* 02-28-2013 08:23 PM

Haha too funny. Good job Calgary, you just made the Avs tougher to play against....

Marty Straka 02-28-2013 08:24 PM

Now I know this has been asked before... but if they were stupid enough to match these terms.. why did they never offer O'Reilly this kind of money in the 1st place if they thought he was worth it?

Vankiller Whale 02-28-2013 08:24 PM

Well then. Glad that's over.

BrianFromAIH 02-28-2013 08:24 PM

Let the Duchene/Stastny trade rumors commence...

McShogun99 02-28-2013 08:24 PM

Why didn't the Avs just sign him for what he wanted in the first place....

Pure 02-28-2013 08:24 PM

Sherman, you are the worst contract negotiator ever. O'Reilly completely owned you (best agent ever). My god, Radar better play like a beast next year or we'll be overpaying him like crazy.

Michael Gary Scott 02-28-2013 08:25 PM

So what's the next sideshow?

couture23 02-28-2013 08:25 PM

Probably could have used him tonight :sarcasm:

JayRosehillMVP 02-28-2013 08:25 PM

Would've taken the top ten pick.
O'reilly vs. Monahan/Barkov/Drouin etc......
My guess is Colorado will regret this....

Thallis 02-28-2013 08:25 PM

Wow. Why?

Exactly.... like, WTF. Why would they play that much of their season without him when they were willing to pay him this in the first place?

This is just a stupid organization :shakehead

Leafs For Life* 02-28-2013 08:26 PM

Lol wait for your other contract negotiations now, Sherman

Empros* 02-28-2013 08:26 PM

Still not a bad move by Calgary, O'Rielly will likely walk after next season and be out of their division/conference.

Future RFA negotiations probably. Now we can say we were "forced into this contract"

dubey 02-28-2013 08:26 PM

1st and a 3rd wasn't enough for him

No surprise they matched

William Hylander 02-28-2013 08:26 PM

That was pathetic by calgary. 2 years 5 million no one is that cheap, need to do 4-5 years.

7even 02-28-2013 08:26 PM

At least that saga's over. Thank god.

JoeLH 02-28-2013 08:26 PM

I can understand to match that offer.

What i cannot understand? Why haven't the Avs been able to negotiate such a contract with him? Poor management!
