Oh wait...that's right...I forgot all you guys are now satisfied with tanking another 3 years. The rebuild has stretched from 2 years to 6-7 years, right?
You're making no sense. What on earth does wanting to sign players to good contracts have to do with tanking?

The reason you want players on good contracts is because it's easier to get future players on good contracts. If you're overpaying O'Reilly after what he has done here, you're inviting trouble with future RFAs.

Avs haven't been unreasonable here. They've been fair to every RFA we have signed and they have been fair to O'Reilly.
