I'm sorry, but Ryan O'Reilly is unreasonable in what way?
He stuck to his guns, and he was proven right; other teams were willing to not only pay him the $5m per he wanted, but exceed that as well.
I think it's pretty clear that Sherman and the Avs were the unreasonable ones, and now we sit here with O'Reilly making $1.5m more next year than he even wanted originally from us. Who was unreasonable, specifically with the information we now have like you said?
