Absolutely. Sherman should have given ROR the 5m/yr immediately. he should have offered 5.5m/yr as soon as the lockout was over, because then ROR would not have gotten injured. O'Reilly definitely has shown he deserved at least close to what Tavares got on his deal. Can't believe 29 other teams hadn't tried that kind of offersheet immediately after he hit RFA status.
