Not to be a Debbie Downer or anything.
Or they may think they're on the verge of closing the deal and don't want to tell Olver/Sgarbossa they made the team then take it back hours later if O'Reilly signs?


It seems you could swing it optimistically or pessimistically so pointless I suppose

Agreed. I don't think this has anything to do with ROR.

Theres no way O'reilly wants to stay in Russia when he can come to North America, play in the NHL, and have a leading role on the team. The 2 year contract thing is 100% negotiating tactic. Some people mentioned that he likes russia and 'wouldn't mind staying there' because he can play alongside his brother, b******t. He's obviously not going to come out and say it'sa negotiating tactic and his intentions are to return to the Avs, because that would destroy any leverage he has created. If he signs tonight like i think he will, he'll have enough time to come back and be ready for opening night.

I think it's just the apparent delay in an announcement that was supposed to come earlier. Either that, or Chambers was way off about the announcement.

Could be a trade, a signing, ROR, or most likely...... nothing.

Yes, fortunately whatever that stuff may have been, this is more important.

It's standard practice, and only common sense, to tell the players they either made the team or are being sent back to LEM before announcing a final roster to the media.

This has got nothing to do with a signing, trade, or anything else related to Ryan O'Reilly.

If the coaching staff takes 5 minutes to talk to each player to tell them they made it, or not, and to have a very brief chat about the upcoming season it will take over two hours to talk to the 25 men in camp. Again, this is standard practice and nothing out of the ordinary.

I honestly don't think anything significant will happen until at least tomorrow.

I think Chambers is reaching here. Yesterday Sacco said an announcement might not be made until Thursday morning.

News broke of Bordeleau knowing a long time ago though. I agree that it's probably nothing, but you never know.

I agree that this is probably nothing.

But I'm hopefully that its something, just because this is irritating and I want it to be resolved one way or another.

I don't think it has anything to do with O'Reilly either but one of Olver/Bordeleau is going to make the team because O'Reilly isn't here. Otherwise one of them would be sent down to Lake Erie. So it's possible that if they signed O'Reilly or were very close to signing him, they might wait to make an announcement on roster cuts.

Why are you getting excited by Chambers drawing a completely insane conclusion from what is standard practice?

OMG, the players get to know who makes the team first!

It's not his choice, Lacroix is still in control.

News from whom though? A 2 bit reporter looking for attention? Someone on twitter speculating? A blog writer looking for a story?
