He wouldn't say whether the two sides were close or not.

Earlier in the interview, when asked the same question about Subban, he definitely said the two sides were NOT close.

There you go.
It does sounds optimistic. I really doubt that O'Reilly is willing to stay in the KHL for two more seasons just for a little more money. Wouldn't surprised me for a Russian but from a Canadian like O'Reilly with a promising career in the NHL? On the other side, there is the Avs whos looking to close a deal on their leading scorer and their best defensive forward by far last season. I doubt they will let him go just like that...for a couple millions.

If It's really for money matter...O'Reilly should probably watch Moneyball
