I think in O'Reilly's case I think they want a richer long term deal to assure O'Reilly is being used to provide offense with the Avs. If he signs a bridge deal and Avs use him more as a defensive guy, he'll have a hard time getting a good contract next time around.

I can understand that view when Avs have Stastny and Duchene on the team.
