Avoiding the actual arbitration hearing, the Avalanche sign O'Reilly.




TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reports that the deal pays him $5.8 million next season and $6.2 million in 2015-16.


"There was never any animosity between us this whole time," O'Reilly told Adrian Dater of The Denver Post on Wednesday.

"Any of the perceived animosity came from the outside."

I thought his nickname was "Big Daddy Cool", or was it the "1-2-3 Kid"?  I can never keep his nicknames straight. 

He was "Big Daddy Cool."

Was told early in weekend that Leafs would settle in $3.25-million range. Same source said Franson would then be dealt, so we'll see.

Once again Cody Franson avoids arbitration with Leafs. Signs one year deal at 3.3 million.


Winging It In Motown @wingingitmotown 31m

The Leafs avoiding arbitration with Cody Franson means they can trade him.



In no way, shape, or form do I wish to drag the discussion back to Doomsville, but let us count the number of defensive signings that are better than the Quincey deal.  Oh, the discussion never left Doomsville... Whew!  I'm safe.


EDIT:  For the record, I understand that some of the signings have individual circumstances/discussions around them. (RFAs, players that actually would sign with DET, etc.)  So, let's not nitpick.


EDIT2: Of course, in the end, we should all take a deep breath and be happy that at least Kenny didn't sign Orpik to that horrible contract.

According to @THNKenCampbell, Ryan O'Reilly asking for $6.75 million in arbitration. Avs offering $5.525 million. One year award.


$5.525 Avs offering O'Reilly represents 15% pay cut from '13-14 salary of $6.5 million, maximum pay cut allowed under CBA.

Ryan O'Reilly scored nearly 30 goals last season, and the Avs are offering him the maximum pay cut allowed under the CBA? #gong
