Did Brian or the Agency write the letter and the spreadsheets? That's what I want to know.
I doubt that the Avs would fail to negotiate O'Reilly up to maybe $4 M on a 2 or 3 year deal. But it doesn't seem that his party was or is interested in that, they just wanted $5 M+ or bust and they've now thrown their tantrums and closed the door to more negotiating.

Honestly, I don't think we'll get much more for him now than we would in the summer. I'm okay with making the brat sit out this season and missing the entire paycheque then shipping him out in the summer, it only helps with the tank. It hurts me to use a word like that for one of my players and usually I would stick up for a young kid in a contract negotiation but this is absurd. He'll of course just stay silent about it while his dad or whomever spews BS.
