That price is way too high. $6.5 million to qualify him after his contract. Is he really worth more than Hall or Eberle or Seguin? The avalanche will have to let him walk because they would be fools to sign him for $6.5 million unless he greatly improves his game, which could happen.

LOL, it was reported the tiff between the Av's and O'Reilly was about them trying to force a 'bridge' contract on him, in the 3 mil range - yet now they'll match a 5m per? I have to think they're planning to deal him, but the QO after that second year is ridiculous, I can't see too many teams being interested.

O'Reilly will be traded next season or his RFA rights will be dealt unless he magically turns into a 70+ point forward.

Honestly O'Reilly definitely isn't worth 5 mil cap hit this year or next year. They matched because of keeping his rights for future potential. But a 1st and 3rd, along with saving money, along with getting rid of a player who couldn't agree to play there is an enticing offer

When they say he would have to be qualified at 6.5 does that mean the contract would have to have a cap hit of 6.5 or would they be able to offer him a front loaded contract that payed 6.5 in the first year?

Shows how desperate Calgary is, and how stupid.

Now other GM's will low ball them if they try and off load some contracts.

I believe to keeps his rights, they have to offer him a deal worth at least 6.5 per or he walks UFA

of course they can always negotiate something different

Colorado's probably trying to use him for trade baiting purposes.

O'Reilly got Grabovski money.

Burke must be completely outraged.

If they want to be a contender they'd take the draft picks. If they only want to meet the salary cap floor they don't give a frack that one player makes so much.

Duchene should be getting a hefty contract now. Also enjoyed SNET ripping GM Sherman claiming Avs signed him etc
