I get the value provided that he plays like he did last year every single game (forgetting about when he disappeared in the last few games of course), but GTFO. When you win a Conn Smythe, you're allowed to ask for some more money and maybe sign an offer sheet. This guy is now second to Bray May on my personal most hated Av list. Yeah, I'm ********.

I didn't think we would ever see O'Reilly in an Avs jersey again. Thank you Jay Feaster.

What is he going to say when he averages like .50 PPG this year? What is the FO going to push to the fans, his teammates etc. ?

ROR is a joke.

Agreed, I dunno why I'm angry at him but I am.

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.
You are worth what someone is willing to pay you. That is the way the world works.

Well, that was a shocking conclusion to the saga. Probably the least likely way for this to unfold.

Well, he is back now. Better kiss ass as I'm sure he made a few enemies here. And better kick ass too.

As for this, from the previous thread:

"Wow Calgary screwed you guys... Way overpayed but you had no choice.... Dam flames"

I'm not sure I want to be the flames when Baertchi comes off ELC, with all those deadweight NTC contracts, they'll have asked for it.

Have to remember that ROR can still be taken to salary arbitration after next year or ROR can (and would) sign a long term deal with a lot lower salary cap than 6.5m. Have to say this does feel like utter incompetence by the Avs management though. Really want Lacroix/Sherman out at this point.

This saga will come back and haunt us. After some thinking I believe that taking the picks would have been the way to go.

This mess is not over. Things are about to get toxic. Terrible precedent and everything. Ugh.
Finally everyone sees what a moronic management (yes I am talking about Sherman AND PL and his cronies) we have...

Sportsnet probably won't show the Sherman press conference or interview. What he's doing during the intermission. So please provide details.

Hope Altitude does. At this point the game is secondary to me.

I'm just mind blown right now. He's not going to put up the same numbers that he did last year, that was with Duchene playing awful and him getting 1st line center minutes. Until Staz gets moved, he's going to be a 3rd line center. He'll get 2nd PP minutes. Like what the **** ...

His cap hit is like his best case situation. If everything goes right and he becomes Patrice Bergeron. Has the same cap hit as him at 21 years old, woooow

It is all over now (thank god!). Time to suck it up and deal with it now. For better or worse ROR is an Av for at least a year.

Things are already toxic. I honestly don't think he'll be accepted very well back in the locker room.

I for one am just really glad we had this lockout to make sure that player salaries aren't getting overly inflated.

If you're going to match, no point in waiting. Still not sure why we didn't give him $9 over two years two months ago. Oreilly is the clear winner here.
