Colorado isn't that far away from the bottom. Can you imagine if the Avs had been dead last and then taken the picks and claimed O'Reilly on waivers?
It may have been even worse for Feaster...word is that Calgary would have also been on the hook for the 2.5 million signing bonus and not Columbus had they picked him up on waivers...hahaha. Someone (Dreger or McKenzie, can't remember who) confirmed that he would have needed to go on waivers no matter what if Colorado didn't match...Calgary wouldn't have had a choice of just not playing him and thus not subjecting him to waivers.
