The problem now is that Duchene, Landeskog, and O'Reilly will all be needing new deals in the same offseason and O'Reilly has a 6.5m qualifying offer.

My question is that if the Avs value O'Reilly so much that they matched this deal in a few hours, why wasn't a deal done much sooner? Obviously money wasn't that big of a deal, because he's getting 6.5m next year
