I agreed with the Avs, that 22 yr old ROR was not worth $5 per after one impressive season, but I'm surprised the Avs have let things turn so bitter with one of their top players.
Doesn't make sense to cut your nose off to spite your face.
We didn't see the Habs trade an unhappy Subban or the Isles trade an unhappy Vis.

Ryan O’Reilly’s days as an Av look to be over
While the Avs were optimistic right after the lockout ended that they could sign O’Reilly and my sources said he would not be traded, things have changed and it appears a virtual certainty O’Reilly will be traded now. The sides became entrenched in their positions, things got a little personal and now there appears no turning back. The only questions remaining are to which team and for which players/draft picks in return.
Darren Dreger of TSN reported tonight the Avs are asking for a “roster player and a top prospect.” That sounds about right. The Avs will not confirm that’s what they are asking for. They won’t confirm much of anything right now. They have gone into bunker mentality mode on the Factor.
