EDIT: No, I'm not comparing O'Reilly to Sakic, but the notion that a holdout or signing an offer sheet is the death kiss is exaggerated.
I agree and disagree...I'm a bit torn. I think it's because I am an ROR fan that I want to believe he'll be here for the long haul.
But all the players who "forced the organization's" hand after Joe were shipped out. Historical Precedence is not on our (O'Reilly fans) side
No matter where I try to roam, it only goes to show, I'm such a long, long way from home.
