I think we have to switch his nickname from "radar" to "comrade" after this.

I just read that : •Not much progress between Avs and O’Reilly . He plans to remain in the KHL… until a contract agreement is reached.

No, he hasn't been able to get Sakic, Nolan, Sundin and Lindros, but who the hell has? Not even Pittsburgh or Edmonton of late have backed into that sort of bonanza.

I really don't know what you expect. The rebuild has gone as it should have gone, and now the Avs have the pieces in place, including a few high picks. The franchise is looking good and has room to grow.
Well Nolan, Sundin and Lindros are 1st picks overall , i think the Nords hit bottom four years in a row it does reminds me what happenings with the Oilers right now .Sakic 15th through Dale Hunter trade (robbery)

Why do I get the feeling that ROR won't be playing for Colorado this year?

He's reading it from the Hockey Insider's website...not sure how much stock one can put in that guy, as he's been known to pick fights with people like Dreger and McKenzie and Ward, etc, etc, etc.

I received an update from the Leafs poster named "smitty10" For those who are a bit new to this, Smitty plays shiny with O'Reilly's uncle in the Toronto area. Some on this board may not believe the information, but just talking with Smitty and looking at his profile info, I believe him and agreed to pass on any info that he sends me in PM's.

Basically, this latest update came from a chat that the two had on Thursday morning. O'Reilly's uncle says that negotiations ARE ongoing and that he DOES believe that Ryan will be back in time for the season to start...but it's sort of coming down to the info that we have been led to believe. That if the Avalanche are willing to put up the money then he is willing to stay in the KHL for the rest of the year and then continue negotiations leading to a return next season.

That was the gist of it. I think (and this is just my speculation, nothing that Smitty passed along to me) that it isn't ALL about the money (it is a business afterall) but that just as important to Ryan is the TERM of the contract. I think that they're closer on money than they are on Term.

Anyways, that was the update that was passed along to me.

Good to hear man. Thanks for the info. I agree with you, i Think its the term thats important to ROR he's probably fine with the money theyre offering. Hopefully they can just meet half way and agree to a 4 yr deal.

Rumor is ROR is asking for 4mil a year over 3 or 4 years.

One of the Denver Post Sports Writers, Mike Chambers, is reporting that O'Reilly is seeking a 5 year deal at "around the money that's been given on 2-3 year deals" so it would be 3.5-3.7 a year.

As has been reported here, a 5 year deal would seemingly eat 1 year of UFA from O'Reilly, based on what was in the previous CBA and no news coming that that has changed with the new CBA.

That seems like a pretty good deal for both parties.

In my opinion ROR is a younger version of Patrice Bergeron. 4mil (or just under) per year is a pretty good deal for the Avs and if they can lock him up for 5 years, that's a steal in the long run.

Avs management should take a step back and ask themselves if an ufa O'Reilly is better in 5 years than losing him now.

I don't think that is the issue. The issue is will this continue to be an issue with O'Reilly in the future? Do you have a guy that is willing to take less money to play for a potential contending Avalanche team in the future, or will he always demand top money? If he has a really big breakout season, would he hold out or become discontent that somebody makes more than him?

Basically, will this become enough of a headache that you are willing to ship him out? I personally, don't think so, but I have no connections to the negotiations.

If Avs have a problem paying O'Reilly after giving Jones and Parenteau $4M/year this summer, the front office needs to be replaced.

Even if the Avs sign O'Reilly for 3 years, they still have to offer a qualifying offer to maintain their RFA rights, which means any money they give O'Reilly for 3 years they'll be guaranteed to have to give to him in the 4th year as well.

I don't think the problem is paying him the money (although I am not sure because after all I have always been in the "our owners don't care about hockey and don't want to spend"-camp).

The problem is that his behavior could be a sign that he will bolt at the first chance he gets if he gets a better contract elsewhere.
And that is not the mentality you want around your team. Especially if you are talking about a core guy like Radar.
I would be pissed if we lose 26yr old ROR to UFA and would rather trade him right now. Very disappointed right now.
I think both sides are handling this beyond poor.
I hope he gets either 3 or 6+ years. Every thing else would be a failure. I don't care about the money if the number is somewhat reasonable (under 4.5M)

What is going on with O'Reilly's number? Over the summer we all though he'd changed to #90 but looking at the Avalanche roster (updated either today or yesterday with all numbers for the new guys), O'Reilly's number is still #37. Have you guys heard anything on if he's not changing afterall?
he will 100% wear number 90 when he returns. Whenever that may be nobody knows, but the next time he wears an avs jersey he will wear number 90.

Given Avs history with RFAs, it's much more likely that Avs are trying to lowball him here rather than O'Reilly being greedy.

All this talk about him wanting to bolt or having unrealistic salary demands is wild speculation that doesn't seem to fit with what we know about the player.

The more I think about Radar's contract I grow more and more sure that this whole mess is about the term. Avs probably don't want to sign him to a deal that would lead him to UFA status.

Avs always want to sign RFAs to short second contracts and that's fine if the player is ok with it. That's how Bettman and owners intended second contracts to work coming out of the 2005 lockout.

But looking around the league more and more skilled RFAs get signed to longer second contracts of 5-7 years that buys a few UFA years. Avs can't get their panties in a twist if one of our players want something like that. Times change. They have to deal with situations as they arise.

I see nothing outrageous with O'Reilly wanting a five year deal if it is at a reasonable salary. It's pretty standard these days.

The sooner Avs clean up whatever stains that are around since the Lacroix days, the better off they will be.
