Exclusive: Flames fortunate Avs matched

In a bizarre twist to an already unusual story, Sportsnet.ca has discovered that the Flames were not only in danger of losing 2013 first- and third-round draft picks as compensation if the Avs hadn’t matched the O’Reilly contract, but they also would likely have had to surrender the player before ever getting him in uniform. That’s because O’Reilly would have needed to clear waivers before joining the team’s roster.
What a major screw up by the Flames that could have been. The Flames could have lost their 1st and 3rd picks and then lost ROR on waivers. That would've been the funniest thing ever.
