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'.



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.
Yes I don't think a big money short term deal is the right idea, but I would offer him 4 per year over 2 years without thinking twice.
