Who, O'Reilly? He's reportedly already turned down a two year, 7M deal and a five year, 17M deal.

His alleged demands are ~4M on a short term deal and ~5M on a long term deal. But, a lot of Ave fans are now believing O'Reilly just wants off the team period, for whatever reason.

Personally, I'm with Colorado's management on this one. O'Reilly's track record in no way warrants a long term deal at over 4M. It'd be in his best interests to sign a bridge contract, similar to that of Duchenes'.

Also for every Ennis there is a Skinner, for every Kulikov there is a Myers. Brassard makes over 3 million he is vastly overpaid ROR isn't asking for a 5 year 25 million contract he wants a 5 million 1 year deal to be paid for what he did the Avs would be stupid to not give it to him to finish this year.
I haven't heard anything like that. But even then, Colorado would be nuts to offer a 1yr/5M deal because it would mean they would have to offer a qualifying offer for at least 4.5M the following season just to keep his rights, regardless of how he plays.
