I'd have been ok with the Habs putting that offer in front of O'Reilly, though. Our pick is (hopefully/likely) much lower, so less risk to us. Of course, more likelihood therefore that Colorado would match. All we'd be taking on is the salary risk. But we have that "heavenly" cap situation looming, so it wouldn't be a huge problem.

I wonder how many offers O'Reilly got. I bet there were several. I can see why this one from the Flames was the one he picked, though. He really does seem to want out of Colorado, so something which they are less likely to match would appeal. And the signing bonus. Etc.
