I think there's probably a lot of rumors, and mis translations, and the GM saying things to hype up his fans.

My bet is it's as simple as Ryan has at least a good idea of what kind of contract he'll get from the Avs, if not a handshake deal made since the Avs wanted to wait until after the CBA. He probably just signed a deal for less with Magnitogorsk. Then when the Avs sign him to a bigger deal, they're essentially guying out his deal with Magnitogorsk, and they're getting a little extra cash and O'Reilly for however many games.
I hope you're right.
