Wanting to get paid what you are worth is not being gready, it's the reality thanks to the last lockout. Why should players give their teams any favors ? A NHL career can be very long but it can also be very short so these guys need to make a lot of money, which they obviously do. But seriously if his market value is around 6,5 per and the Avalanche expect a 1 million hometown discount it's not going to happen neither should it. Yeah, Landeskog signed for less but that doesn't mean that O'Reilly has to do the same.
Guy would be the perfect winger for Crosby so hopefully the Pens aren't getting him.
While that;s what the market might have become, do you think you could survive quite happily on $12.5 million for another 40 years? I think I could. I'm just saying.
For sure but let's be honest if you have the realistic chance to make around 42 million with a long-term contract instead of lets say 30 for sure you take the better option. Like I said I really understand why players aren't doing favors anymore the Gms can thank a certain new York lawyer for this.
I mean lets say the Avs get the arbitration reduced to 5,5 the relationship is ruined and O'Reilly will bolt at his first chance which will not leave a good impression on other ufas.
