How great would it have been if the Avs elected to not match the offer sheet!
In a bizarre twist to an already unusual story, Sportsnet.ca has discovered that the Flames were not only in danger of losing 2013 first- and third-round draft picks as compensation if the Avs hadn’t matched the O’Reilly contract, but they also would likely have had to surrender the player before ever getting him in uniform.
That’s because O’Reilly would have needed to clear waivers before joining the team’s roster.
Am I the only one out there that doesn't see O'Reilly as the "franchise player" that Feaster apparently does? I mean, he's a good player and all...but is he really worth $6.5 million AAV?
