I didn't realize that in order for his out-clause to work, his contract with the Avs has to be worth more.

If people here are seriously expecting O'Reilly back with the Avs then they better hope that contract is ~3 million per year. I have a feeling it is more.

Pretty crafty on his/agent's part. I'm sure O'Reilly will enjoy that guaranteed minimum contract amount, wherever that ends up being. Very hard to say how the Avs respond to this.

Fowler, Giordano, Kulikov, Hamonic, M. Staal, Del Zotto, Ekman-Larsson, Hedman, or Gardiner would be a fine basis to a deal, with something added on to the respective side that needs it in certain deals.
