The question is why O'Reilly is much more stubborn than all those players.
Does it really surprise anyone that Ryan O'Reilly is the one who's most stubborn and hardest to break of that group of players? Not even getting into the specifics of Ryan being the only of those guys who was coming off of a great season in which he flourished while being handed all of the responsibility, just looking at the personalities at play here. Ryan's a stubborn and prideful dude. It's why we love him on the ice so much, but it's also why I'm disappointingly not shocked he's such a ***** to negotiate with. Especially with his dad, who still hasn't realized that he needs a trip-sitter.
