You get more assets for a player who doesn't want to be on the Avs, and you royally screw over a divisional opponent in the process. It would be turning a bad situation into a huge win.

Matching so quickly is a nice token gesture, but it cost him.
If Ryan O'Reilly doesn't want to be on the Avs, he wouldn't have signed an offer sheet.
