I'm telling you that KHL match deal f' d everything up. They can't give him more than Duchene on a two year deal just on principle. It'd be a slap in the face to him, and potentially cause a rift.
I agree that the Avs are somewhat boxed in with respect to their negotiating position. From what is being reported, O'Reilly is basically asking for a better deal than Duchene and EJ.

It is a tough spot IMO for the Avs' management.
