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.
Meanwhile, this is just killing what Colorado is going to get for ROR. I was talking to a buddy at hockey who is a Avs fan and he thinks they will get a top 6 forward, a prospect and a first rounder for him

I was going to argue with him, but if you are that detached from reality, there's not much anyone can say.
