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?
I respect you more than most posters on here, but it isn't right to say he was proven right. He was offered a contract by a gm fighting to keep his job. a 22 year old RFA shouldn't get paid that kind of money over a 2 year deal. I'm glad we have him back, whatever the cost but i certainly hope O'Reilly and the people around him don't feel he deserved to get what he got, while much better hockey players have agreed to less money much easier at that age.
