It's odd to say the less. It could just be a ploy or maybe there is more to the story. There were rumblings that Duchene wasn't happy and I heard something in regards to O'Reilly but I can't remember what it was now.

I will say this though, the only real issue the Avs have is they might have to trade him. But I doubt is value is all that low on the trade market. They should be able to get market value for him.
As far as I know, the NHL - KHL transfer agreement goes both ways. Given that he doesn't have an NHL contract, is he stuck in Magnitotorsk for 2 years now?

If so, this is delightful news. Colorado just got significantly worse.
