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?
To be fair to the Avs side of it... It wasn't 'other teams' it was Jay Feaster. lol Honest, I'm totally willing to gamble on him being ready to take a longer term 5M AAV contract as long as he earns it.
The scary thing is if he does not and earns something more like 4M AAV, does he take that long term or take the 6.5M Q/O or at least the 5.525 arbitration award? THAT is the scary side of things...
