Shame we don't have our 1st rounder this year and offer sheets are so taboo, because I would love to throw a 2 year poison pill offer sheet at him and use him as a rental. Something along the lines of:

2012-2013 salary: 3m
2013-2014 salary: 6m (with most of the money coming via a signing bonus during the summer(

Colorado is then left with either taking a 1st + 3rd rounder as compensation, or having to pay O'Reilly $6m next year (without being able to trade him before the big payout during the summer signing bonus) and if they matched, it would basically be a rental contract for them and O'Reilly would become a UFA next summer, because his qualifying offer would be $6m.
