i like how he used the Math grades to imply $$ while writing an essay about how its not about money.


Clearly he wants to be paid more then duchene, after he had 1 good year and duchene had 1 bad year.

The whole "my kid gets 95 your kid gets 65 he shouldnt have to tone it down to make the other feel better"


= Avs basically told O'reilly he cant make more then duchene, and professor poopy pants the life coach wants more based on 1 year



tl;dr its all about money, and i would classify this as weak "character" based on the fact that they're trying to cash in so hard off his good year maybe they dont have enough character to think he can replicate it to make bank off a future contract.

This is difficult to read. Reads like scientology propaganda.

Brian and Ryan O'Reilly might want to simplify things a bit and take O'Neill's tweet as their new mantra.

I hadn't realized ROR has 39 career goals and about 100 total points in three complete seasons. I'm sorry, but that's just not worth 5 or 6 million per on a long-term deal.

To put this into perspective, ROR had 30 less points than Jordan Staal in 60 more games over the same span, is smaller, worse, not a pending unrestricted free agent and wants the same money as Staal got.

Pipe dream.

I am not a English major so I should not be dogging this guy out but holy hell that was terrible...I guess it does not take much to be a successful life coach or whatever he calls himself...He should have had a 4th grader proofread that.

Apparently "character" is a numerically definable quantity like a math test, while actual hockey statistical production isn't important.

Maybe daddy is intentionally putting more pressure for the Avs to trade his son. No way does this not become a locker room distraction for the team now.

Production doesn't build dynasties, character does.

I stopped at "Human Potential Plus" being the name of his "business"

If you need a "Life coach", chances are it's already too late.

Oh I get it now.

Duchene toned it down last season to make O'Reilly feel better about his season.
And Stastny been doing it for years now.

You don't know how ROR feels about Sacco and the future of the franchise.
Maybe he did act like a diva but I wouldn't say that Kyle Turris is a greedy player. He signed on for Phx for $1.4 M ultimately once they agreed that they'd trade him (in principle it seems) and when he re-signed with Ottawa, he did it for 5 years at $3.5 M which is pretty good for a 2C. He could easily been on pace for 50-60 pts this year and asked for more than that next one.

He wanted out from Phx and I think even Phx fans will agree because he didn't wanna play there at the end of the day. It was a dispute about how he was being used, they could've offered him twice the cap hit and I doubt he'd re-sign. With O'Reilly, he was given great treatment since his rookie year. He was even given more TOI than Duchene last season and got to play top minutes and produce. He didn't even have to kill penalties for long stretches. If anyone should be pissed last season then it should be Duchene who was constantly moved around lines and the wing/centre. Even this season the coach uses Duchene on the point for some reason, I've seen Matt Duchene score some good goals with his wrister and down low but he doesn't have much of a slap shot.

My point is that I won't say that Turris was being greedy and just wanted $, playing time/style was the bigger issue whereas with O'Reilly it's just $.

Perhaps the following from Friedman's 30 thoughs make more sense now.

"What's that line, "You really have to love someone before you can hate them?" Boy, does that remind me of Ryan O'Reilly and the Colorado Avalanche. Last year, they couldn't say enough good things about each other. Now it's like Heather Mills and Paul McCartney. Ugly contract negotiations, the captaincy (which O'Reilly certainly thought he was going to get). Both sides have accused the other of allowing "non-principals" to "meddle" in the process. It's a train wreck. "

"It has been lightly touched up for a couple minor spelling and punctuation things"

Really? It had to be painful reading the unedited version because I couldn't finish reading the so-called edited version. This blog has to be a joke; who in their write, oops, I mean right mind would want this crap published? It's like saying John Rivers' face has been 'lightly touched up'...sorry, I can't stop laughing.

That email is really funny. He wrote Academically, Willing, "Or," and many other words, all of which are capitalized in the middle of a sentence.

Wow that was insightful. Disregard statistics, acquire character. Someone email all 30 GMs and let them know they're doing it wrong.
