Just curious where the Avs would likely draw the line there.
Avs are making money. You can't design an offer sheet where they won't match because they couldn't afford to.
The only way Avs won't match is because the cap hit is so big that the value of the compensation is higher than the value of O'Reilly at that inflated salary.
