I'd be embarrassed. "It's not about the money"... but, ya, it's about the money. What a joke they're proving to be.

Matt Duchene said it best, play and prove yourself. You'll get a fair offer in the meantime.

Guys like O'Reilly clearly don't have the stones or faith that they could take a fair deal today in the 3.5 million range, 2 years, prove yourself, etc. If you do prove yourself, there will be a line-up of teams waiting and wanting to pay you.

"The ‘now’ is very good in Chicago. The ‘now’ back in the days when they were drafting first, second and third? It wasn’t very good. But the core of fans that stuck with them, if you asked them now, I betcha they’d say it was worth it.” - Kevin Cheveldayoff
