from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,
In the wake of Monday night’s P.K. Subban deal, the 21-year-old restricted free agent and erstwhile KHL star is now the last remaining big-name player without a contract for this season.
O’Reilly led the Avalanche in scoring last season — albeit with just 55 points – -and brings a package of heart and skill that the franchise wants to rebuild around. After making $900,000 on the last year of his entry-level deal, according to capgeek.com, all agree that he is due a hefty raise.
And he’ll get one.
But if he held out any hope of swinging $5 million a year from the Avs, well, that grandiose dream died Monday night under the pitiless boot heel of Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin.
If we’ve learned anything during the last couple weeks from the signings of RFAs like Subban and Michael Del Zotto, it’s that a certain sense of order has been restored in the wake of the new CBA.
