Why did you sign a contract for two years and not for the lockout period?
Depending on the terms of the contract I do not know how it is going to work out with the new CBA and what is going happen with Colorado. I do like Metallurg and playing there. I am definitely happy be there and playing with the team also.
Your agent Mark Guy told there is a clause in the contract which allows you to come back to the NHL, if the Colorado Avalanche would offer you a contract with the better conditions?
Yes if Colorado can, I accept it and return.
Would Magnitogorsk allow you to come back?
Yes, I will be able to leave.
I read the official KHL rules do not allow have a clause in the contract.
For my situation being involved in the NHL last year and not being on the contract I am in very unique situation compared with the most players on the contract. It is difficult to explain.
Full interview here:
I really doubt O'Reilly and his agent know more than Vorky but they seem to think he'll be able to leave.
