From Andrew Walker on Sportsnetsnet's Fan960 In Calgary:

@fan960walker

As if this day couldn't make #Flames fans puff out cheat any more.... Was just told by source that #Canucks also issued Offer sheet.


@patersonjeff

If O'Reilly chose CGY over #Canucks, that'd be Nux first outright loss to NW division opponent this season

probably didn't want to play behind Henrik and Kesler. Also probably didn't offer the $$ the Flames did

If this is what Gillis had up his sleeve then this is just laughable. Since O'Reilly just accepted a 5 million dollar offersheet Gillis would have done the same? Were putting another 5 million in a non-proven player? A player from a losing team to boot...

Sigh..

This management team is turning into a big joke.

Well this was an interesting turn of events. Not a turn, but side-story at least.

There's a difference between filing an offer sheet with the league and making an offer to the player and his agent.

I'm sure several teams made inquiries to O'Reilly, and it turned out that the Flames made the offer that he liked the best. It happens.

Good on the Canucks for trying to land him though. Also good on the Canucks for not overpaying him just to land him.

Lol at Flames fans being proud that he signed the Flames offer sheet.

It's because they offered him 6.5 million. Only Feaster is dumb enough to offer that much.

And I bet the Avs match, so it's all irrelevant anyways.

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!

Didn't we just do that with Garrison paying him 4M+?

The thing with O'Reilly is that he's an upcoming solid two way forward centerman who will have a long career in the NHL. He's going to become one of the best two way centers with the right development but right now, it's a bit of an overpayment..

Uuummm...I don't think the Canucks could sign him to an offer sheet (contract) after he's already signed an offer sheet (contract) with the Flames.

This is BS.

Calgary's offer sheet was the only O'Reilly was presented with.

You read too quickly.. It was rumoured that the Nucks submitted an offer sheet.. The kicker is that O'Reilly has to sign with the one he likes.. Anyone can sign any RFA to an offer sheet but the player has to accept it in order for the team to be officially signing the player to an offer sheet.

Was that from the same poster? I wouldn't be surprised.

And it has now been reported that the Flames were the only team to submit an offer sheet, so there goes that.

We probably offered less money. I couldn't see Gillis offering him more than 4.5

We did... and so far he has not performed up to expectations. You do realize that the cap is rumoured to fall to 10 million dollars or so next year right?

5 million dollar for O'Reilly? Pass

There was no offer sheet from us. Calgary was the only team to formally submit one.

Although I'm sure there were other teams thinking about it.

He most likely declined it for the reason

A: Calgary was offering more money

and

B: He's automatically their #1 or #2 Center and will get much more ice time in Calgary than he would in Vancouver

If offer sheets are submitted BUT unsigned are people even made aware of them besides the team offer sheeting, the player and his agent?

You realize the fan960 is a radio station right? That's like getting your rumors from Dave Pratt...

David Pagnotta@TheFourthPeriod
Seeing your questions... Told from very reliable source CGY's offer sheet was the only one he received.


And David Pagnotta is a reliable source. This isn't Eklund and hockeybuzz, these are respectable sources.
