Yes, O'Reilly is worth $4m per but he is not currently worth $5m per for 5 seasons (his demands apparently and his agent all but confirmed this.) The Avs are doing the right thing here both with regards to their own salaries and the entire league's. How is $5m per "fair market value" for O'Reilly based on what he has accomplished so far? Patrice Bergeron he is not.
