We take a shot. I think the Avs management might kind of thank us. After they drew a line in the sand they couldn't really back down. If they really don't like the contract they have a tradeable asset at the end of the year. I don't think they'd be quite as mad as we think.

As for giving up a 1st and 3rd, ROR is absolutely worth that. A draft pick is nothing but potential. At least OReilly has shown some results already at the top level.
