Jay Feaster and Greg Sherman royally screwed up the Ryan O'Reilly situation.

If the Flames successfully signed Ryan O'Reilly, they would have had to pass him through waivers first, because he played in the KHL this season without an NHL contract. That means sending conpensation picks to Colorado for signing their RFA, then most definitely losing him on waivers to a team like Columbus.

If Sherman didn't have his head up his butt, he would have sent a memo out to every team in the league letting them know they would have to pass O'Reilly through waivers if they poached him. Then he wouldn't have had to match a ridiculous deal.
