They can't trade him for a calendar year. The Avs will be paying most of the 6.5 mill.

It being so quick makes me think they know they could get more then that in trade. So if he comes back and is unhappy they can still move him.

never mind, I didn't realize it was a full year and not just a season.

We can't trade him for one calendar year. He's on the books up until the 2014 trade deadline.

Can't trade him for a calendar year, and today's date is probably right around the deadline date for next season. So he's pretty much guaranteed to be with the Avs until at least the 13-14 off-season.

I actually lost so much respect for O'Reilly that I don't even want him on this team anymore. Garbage for the locker room.

Buyout? So we just punted 2 draft picks for nothing?

We can't trade him for one year after matching. We may have just beaten the trade deadline of next year.

If Lacroix is still in charge at the end of O'Reilly's contract, that dude is going to be traded. Period.

But, I'm both amazed and laughing my ass off:

Ryan O'Reilly b**chslapped Lacroix and Sherman both. Simply smoked them.

Unreal.

I can't believe they'll be negotiating off that $6.5M salary after next season.

What a greedy ****. I'm so pissed at him. You really think you're worth that money as a 21 year old RFA? I refuse to believe this isn't purely greed based at this point. That's just shameful to put yourself that far above your teammates salary wise.

Avs decided to match offer about two hours after consultation with ownership

Sounds like some tight purse strings...

Doh, nevermind, I forgot a buyout only works when you sit the player with no return.

Please fire the front office. They have no idea how to manage their assets. Now every agent knows that Sherman's hard ball is just for show.

agreed. Hope the kid lives up to it. Especially once they trade Stastny. Because if he doesn't...after the way he and his dad have acted...he'll be begging for that 3.5 bridge deal.

And if he becomes the punching bag around here that Stastny is...man it's gonna be hilarious.

THe contract is backloaded so he doesn't lose much money on the pro-rating of his contract this year.

Plus to retain his rights after next season, ROR will have to be qualified at a salary of at least $6.5M.

Basically ROR will cost $6.5M per season until UFA.

I hope everybody boo's him. Hope his teammates give him the cold shoulder. Can't believe this is happening. I legit don't want to cheer for him.

ROR will probably leave in two years, might as well keep Staz.

This. I can't see Stastny staying now. Prepare for him to be dealt for a defensemen + pick.

Gotta think the organization makes a real push for contention next year. It's probably the last year we can afford all 3 centers. Who are the UFA defensemen this summer? What would our 1st round pick attract?

AND WE MATCH????!!!!!

Did I miss something?
Apparently, you missed what the lockout was about.

I don't have an opinion of whether matching is a good or bad decision, but if the Avs were going to match then the sooner the better given the shortened season and how much of ROR's compensation is in the signing bonus this season.
