If I am right about the money he is looking for, then I think he will be worth it over the course of the contract. I'm just not interested in the baggage he would bring. We can't give a player a long term deal on the back of 1 season while asking the guys we have developed to take a discount.

Restricted free agent Ryan O'Reilly has already missed the Colorado Avalanche's first two games.
O'Reilly and the Avalanche seem to be stuck in a staring contest regarding how much his client is worth. O'Reilly's agent recently said that his client isn't looking for $5 million per season despite the rumors to the contrary. However, it's not clear how much O'Reilly does want. The Avalanche have reportedly offered O'Reilly a two-year/$7 million deal and a separate five-year/$17 million contract. Meanwhile, the Avalanche will play again on Thursday.
This one is via the NY Post.
According to the the New York Post's Larry Brooks, the Rangers "have checked in on" Ryan O'Reilly, "but are very unlikely" to try to work out a deal with the Avalanche.Brooks said it's unclear what the Rangers would have to part with, but it's the salary demands that are most discouraging. O'Reilly, who recorded 55 points a year ago, has rejected Colorado's two-year, $3.5 million offer and five-year one with less annual average salary. Feb 15 - 10:32 AM
