For starters, the prevailing thoughts that O'Reilly is just upset with Colorado management and would be willing to move off of his silly demands to play for the Rangers.

Elsewhere in this thread, I've seen thoughts about how Stralman can take MDZ's minutes, and how Skjei = McDonagh.

Some of these things are more ridiculous than others. All of them are not true to some extent.
Ah. Yeah, I missed most of those because I tend to ignore the ridiculous posters.

I don't think it's out of the question that ROR is upset with Colorado management. What exactly he's upset about would be open to speculation, but the indications are there. Mostly in the report that he refuses to budge off of his initial asking price. What he might be unhappy with is the Avs front office simply refusing to offer a term he could work with.
