And, as we know now from TPS, things really deteriorated from there, and Dater said there is maybe a 1% chance Ryan ever plays for Colorado again. They (the Avs and O'Reilly) are not talking at all, and everyone is now just waiting for a trade.
Yeah, the 10 page letter thing is a bit of an exaggeration on AD's part, but that document is the one where they made the case for him being one of the top defensive forwards in the last 25 years and a bunch of other stuff.

His agency, with the full support of Camp O'Reilly. His father has not been involved in any of the negotiations.
