This Ryan o'rielly thing is just entertaining.. I was just checking rotoworld for some fantasy news and I saw this bit of information saying ROR felt snubbed when the Avs went with Landeskog for captain:
Ryan O'Reilly's relationship with the Colorado Avalanche might have deteriorated when he wasn't named the captain.
O'Reilly is a restricted free agent who is, at this point, far more likely to be traded than to ever play for the Avalanche again. O'Reilly was reportedly hurt when the Avalanche went with Gabriel Landeskog over him. The Denver Post's Adrian Dater stated, "No way do I think O'Reilly's camp would have played such hardball if he'd been named captain." Of course, there were more reasons than the captaincy that led to this current situation. The biggest is likely money. O'Reilly wanted compensation that he felt was fair given his breakout season, while Colorado didn't want to accept that level of financial risk given O'Reilly's far less impressive showings in his previous two campaigns.
