This whole time I thought it was something else.
I'm not saying that he's worth 5 million a year.

But let's look at these so-called "fair offers" that the Avs game him.

They laid out two options, and only two options. The same deal that Duchene signed or a 5 year, 17 million dollar offer, that buys one of Ryan's UFA years, and that offer was an AAV of 3.4 million. To me, that is an insult. If you're going to buy a UFA year, that offer should have been an AAV of 4-4.5m.

And the Avs' ONLY reason for not wanting to budge on the 2yr 7m offer is because Ryan would then be paid more than Duchene.
