In your opinion only, based on what limited talks you've had with Ryan, he's saying the right words publically, that he's happy to be back playing for the Avalanche fans. Do you feel that there's a legitimate chance that whatever "bad blood" that had come up during negotiations CAN be smoothed over?
The bad blood is with Sherman and the suits.

I've said it many times... Sacco loves O'Reilly and O'Reilly loves playing for Sacco. How Sacco values players is VERY DIFFERENT from how our management values them. They are not on the same page with that.

I don't think the bad blood goes away just like that, but the faces he will be seeing are those of people who appreciate him and recognize his importance; not the suits.
