I am on your side 100%.

No direspect to Jones but we need O'Reilly a lot more than we need him. You can easily find a player like Jones via a trade but O'Reilly brings something that will help us become a Cup contender team.

Sherman needs to do his ..... job.

An Avs head scout told some random fan exactly what the Avs offered O'Reilly? Hilarious.

McKenzie says the Avs haven't even offered O'Reilly a contract yet.

Still won't stop people from saying give O'Reilly whatever he wants. Just let him and his agent fill in the numbers.

If O'R stays in the KHL this season, I doubt he'll ever play for the Avs again.

This. It is debatable that he will stay long term anyway, but if he skips out for this season, he is as good as gone. People always say it is darkest before the dawn, hopefully that is the case here.

My god I hope they hurry up and get the MOU finalized. I'm sick of all this speculation. Plus I want to see some trades.

I think so. I would imagine that most teams deals in place with their RFA's and are waiting for it to become official. Can't wait to see if there are any significant trades tonight or tommorow.

Probably not. Things could have changed now but the other day McKenzie said O'Reilly hasn't even received an offer from the Avs. That makes it seem like they're not close. Whether you like/trust him or not, Dater also says he's hearing they're not close.

You can't even formally make an offer from what I understand until the MOU is finished.

I think they can talk and make offers but just can't sign anything. McKenzie said Franson has already agreed to a one year deal with the Leafs. So that would mean an offer was made, the deal just can't be official until the MOU is done.

Believe what you want. I just think that O'reilly will be signed by tommorow.

Based on experience, I don't trust any rumors/reports regarding Avs players. The hit/miss ratio has been very low historically.

You cant "Officially" make an offer until the MOU is signed, that doesn't mean the two sides cant be/haven't been talking for the last few days, and have an agreement in place. Its been said that Cody Franson will sign a 1 year deal with Toronto once the MOU us signed, so obviously they had discussions before today.

If Oreilly hasn't signed by tomorrow night, then I believe its time to start worrying a little. That would mean the two sides haven't reached an agreement and some of the speculation that has been circling could be true. Until then I'm still of the assumption that Oreilly will be in an Avs sweater one week from tonight(which is awesome to say btw, Hockey's back in a week!)

I hope that's true and that might be the case. Like I said, McKenzie tweeted that two days ago and a lot can change in two days if they've been negotiating non stop.

Don't tell me you actually believe teams aren't going to make offers just because they're not supposed to. There will be a bunch of players getting signed as soon as the MOU is done because they had the contracts all ready to go. Just like how free agents are signed a minute after free agency begins on July 1st.

Most likely they have been in contact. The Avs are a smaller market team and not alot of information squeaks out. The Avs may not have offered him anything yet but do you really believe that means that they aren't going to? Most likely the Avs aren't going to hardball our best player especially over something so asinine like contract length.

I never said that. Of course they're going to offer him a contract (if they haven't done it already).

Also, if the Avs weren't going to play hardball with O'Reilly, they would have signed him by now. He would have been signed before the lockout.
