After reading that article, I have to say ROR is as good as gone. It obvious that he and his agent are playing hardball with the Avs, meaning they are asking for either too many years at too high a rate something like 7yrs @ 5M + or they are asking for high money on a short contract like 6M+ on a 2 yrs deal.

Either way he doesn't deserve either. I can't fault the guy for asking the world but we shouldn't cave and give the world when he hasn't really proved anything. One year where he was given an opportunity to play with our best player (Landeskog) all year doesn't mean jack. If Landy had played with Duchene or Stastny all year O'Reilly wouldn't have lead the team in scoring, its all relative.

It looks like we have a Turris situation going on with ROR, hopefully we can trade him for a quality dman.
