Perhaps these GMs are 99% sure they are right? Maybe they knew there are provisions in place allow them to dissolve the offer sheet due to CBA ambiguity? None of us know the answer to these questions in regards to risk factor.
What's the logic behind that statement? How would confirming what the rule is eliminate the chance of getting O'Reilly?

If they are right, the phone call will confirm it and they can go after O'Reilly. If they are wrong, they will lose two-three picks and not get the player if they use an offer sheet and obviously would choose not to.

There is no reason whatsoever to not check with the league if the GM think the rule applies but is vague. Only an incompetent GM would gamble on something like this.
