The Latest On Ryan O’Reilly And The Avalanche

from Adrain Dater of All Things Avs,

Here’s the deal with O’Reilly and the Avs: no, they don’t have agreement on a long-term deal right now. The parties, in fact, haven’t talked since the summer when they tried to work something out but couldn’t. But they will talk again after the season is over, and things actually are good right now between the Avs and O’Reilly. There is reasonable optimism he’ll get a new deal this summer and continue his career with the Avs.

Sometimes I have to keep reminding myself that this is the new Avs, not the old Avs. Joe Sakic and Patrick Roy do do things differently than the old regime, but sometimes I’m still caught up in the past.

Is there a chance things still don’t work out with O’Reilly and somehow he’s gone this summer? I guess, but after talking with people tonight, I don’t think so.

Hmm, wonder what you get caught up in the past…
