Avalanche match Calgary's Offer Sheet for ROR

Quote:
John Shannon ‏@JSportsnet
Colorado has already matched the offer sheet on O'Reilly. Wow.
Quote:
James Mirtle ‏@mirtle
Avs have matched the O'Reilly offer sheet.
Wow, already??

Quote:
Jesse Spector ‏@jessespector
Matching quickly is also big for the Avs because they can’t trade O’Reilly for a calendar year, and this is right around deadline time.

BREAKING: @Avalanche announced tonight that the team has matched the Calgary Flames’ offer sheet for forward Ryan O’Reilly.

Now I know this has been asked before... but if they were stupid enough to match these terms.. why did they never offer O'Reilly this kind of money in the 1st place if they thought he was worth it?

Sherman, you are the worst contract negotiator ever. O'Reilly completely owned you (best agent ever). My god, Radar better play like a beast next year or we'll be overpaying him like crazy.

Would've taken the top ten pick.
O'reilly vs. Monahan/Barkov/Drouin etc......
My guess is Colorado will regret this....

Exactly.... like, WTF. Why would they play that much of their season without him when they were willing to pay him this in the first place?

This is just a stupid organization

Still not a bad move by Calgary, O'Rielly will likely walk after next season and be out of their division/conference.

Future RFA negotiations probably. Now we can say we were "forced into this contract"

I can understand to match that offer.

What i cannot understand? Why haven't the Avs been able to negotiate such a contract with him? Poor management!
