Agreed, but I don't think they'll be the ones doing the negotiating in the offseason if it comes to that.

IMO if Oreilly isn't signed by around the 6-10 game mark of the season, he wont play another game in an Avs jersey. Theres gonna come a point when management will say enough is enough, they'll give him one final offer to either take it or leave it, and if he doesn't take it he'll be shipped out pretty quickly.

And honestly, I'm ok with that scenario, It'll force something to happen, and if we trade Oreilly it will more then likely fill a big hole on Defense, while creating a much smaller hole in the 3C position, which is a lot easier to fill then a Top pairing Dman.

So either way I'm ok with whatever happens, but it needs to happen sooner rather then later, when were out of the playoffs.
