Holy. Crap.

This must be similar to when St. Louis signed Wellwood 2 years ago, but he was in the KHL and therefore had to pass through waivers, which is when SJ claimed him.

Could you imagine Colorado did not match the offer sheet, only for O'Reilly to have been opened up to Waivers, thus for sure someone would have claimed him. For. Free.
no Kidding. Imagine if colorado claimed him!?

a first and a third from Calgary, for nothing! talk about having your cake and eating it too.
