When the Avs signed Parenteau, they probably didn't anticipate O'Reilly being so hard to negotiate with. They've offered him fair contracts, he just wants more. That doesn't mean they value him any less than they previously did. The Avs, like a lot of teams, aren't willing to break the bank on a long term deal for a young player when a reasonable bridge deal makes more sense. The Habs did it with Subban, but O'Reilly has proven to make this more difficult.
