O'Reilly summary - nobody has a clue

Not sure what is going on at the DP of late. Dater, especially, seems to flip flop between one side of things and another and this is a great example of the 3 regular writers having very different takes on the situation.

Dater: http://blogs.denverpost.com/avs/2013...-to-him/12593/

I thought it worth posting as it would seem that the 3 external people, who should have the most insight, all seem to have completely takes on the situation. I've not been impressed with the DP's coverage of this situation - they seem to go one from extreme to the other from article to article.

They are no better than fan blogs at this point in time.

dater is such a drama queen. he constantly tries to stir up trouble in places that it most likely doesn't exist. this article is a perfect example as was the one a couple weeks ago where he pointed out how well some ex-avs are doing around the league without mention of how horrible some others are doing or how every team in the league has ex-players doing well on some other team.

Agreed about Dater. He contradicts himself week to week on O'Reilly. Sometimes, it's that O'Reilly was offered a fair contract and that he's getting bad advice, then the next week it will be Dater angry at the Avs for not paying him whatever he wants. He's got no consistency on the issue.

If we want manic opinions on things, that's what we've got HFBoards for.

With the limited information they get from the Avs, its kinda hard for them to really right much outside of what they do.

But yea, Dater does seem to switch who's views a lot.

I normally don't care about beet writers and don't read their stuff but Dater will become detrimental to this team if we're ever at the next step. Need to change to a more neutral beet writer who doesn't say crap and gets emotional all the time. I have nothing against his writing style and I wouldn't care if he were any other journalist but he's the man who gets access to all our player as the paid writer and I don't want him to be a part of that.

Avs could've sent a new offer for all we know, these people have no real information. The only thing we can judge is from O'Reilly's dad's tweets which indicate it's not going well. ****ing Lacroix and O'Reilly/O'Reilly's agent.

Yea, that certainly seems like the least emotional and most informed voice in the room.

Eklund isn't putting out a lot of rumors specifically regarding O'Reilly but seems to think Colorado will get there price. Even if he does have some legit sources, It makes sense that he isn't getting a lot of specific information beyond which or how many teams are interested.

So take this blog for what it's worth...

Is that because the team is really keeping things quiet or is it because the media are not doing enough work on the story?

You linked three opinion pieces, two of which were blog posts. They get paid to give their own take.
