Rumors are that O'Reilly isn't signing any offer sheets because he's worried that Colorado will match. Just a rumour though that has been filtering through the boards. He really wants out of Colorado.
Has anyone confirmed the rumor that RFAs become UFAs after 2 years without a contract? If so that puts a lot of pressure on Colorado to get a deal done soon, otherwise it may be in ROR's best interest to hold out a little longer so that he can choose his destination and increase his salary, especially since the team wouldn't have to spend any assets to acquire him.
