The Avs still own O'Reilly's nhl rights.

I think this KHL signng, is a way for his agent to have some leverage in his next extension talks. I don't see a 2nd NHL team entering the picture, unless the Avs and O'Reilly can't reach a contract agreement.

21 yr old O'Reilly led the Avs in scoring, but has only put up good numbers in 1 of his in 3 seasons. I'm guessing the Avs would like him to sign a short term 'show me contract', before signing him to a larger deal.
