Holy batman, how could Calgary do this without knowing about his name appearing on the game sheets.

Me thinks someone in the front office (a no name) will be fired within the next couple of days.

That would of been freaking funny. :twisted:

There is also some discussion that Calgary could have been on the hook for the $2.5mil signing bonus.

The cost could have been ROR, a 1st round pick, a 3rd round pick and $2.5mil.

Bountiful now wants Feaster's head on Burke's platter.

In Lawrence Gillman we trust.

Could Calgary kept him in the KHL for the rest of this season and have him play for the team next year without clearing waivers?

This is a good one

Well, since Daly came out and said this, they should really sue the NHL to see if they can force the Avs to put O'Reilly on re-entry waivers. They can probably argue it's ambiguous whether O'Reilly's the Av's RFA after he signed the offer sheet with the Flames.

It would have been an interesting day had the Avs not matched. This only happens if the RFA actually plays in Europe while holding out. It will be a lesson for RFA's and their agents in the future. But his agent should have know as under the old CBA even the AVS would have had to wait until he cleared waivers. So the only change is that the team owning his rights is exempt from the waivers. No excuse for Calgary or any other team in now knowing.

Unless there were some non disclosure issues on the agent's part, i.e., not informing the Flames that ROR had played two games, then this could have been a disaster for the Flames. Lose a 1st and a 3rd and 2.5 in a signing bonus and get nothing to show for it.


Tallon lost his job with the Hawks over his RFA fiasco wonder what will happen to Fester.

Because O’Reilly spent the last three years in Colorado, he’s not viewed as a free agent who is joining a NHL team from Europe midway through the season. As a result, he does not need to clear waivers before suiting up for the Avs again.

The circumstances would have been much different if Calgary’s offer sheet was accepted.

That would have created a potentially disastrous situation where the Flames had to send two decent draft picks to Colorado before losing the rights to O’Reilly immediately afterwards. Hypothetically, it could even have been the Avalanche that ended up putting in a waiver claim on the player, assuming that they dropped back below Calgary in the standings by the time he hit the wire at the end of next week.

That would have been priceless ;)


What kind of stupid GM could have done this?? :lol: I bet you Sherman did not know that neither. If he knows, he would have matched. He got the picks and could pick him up for free...


Gillis said today that he knew about this and that is why Canucks did not give an offer sheet.

Said he didn't know what Calgary was thinking.

LOFL @ Feaster!

Apparently the NHL is supposed to flag players who need to clear waivers to re-join the league in situations like this so GM' s can get a quick check before making a move like this. The NHL for some reason did not flag ROR. The league has said that would not have been a defence for Calgary not doing their due diligence, as the flagging system is a courtesy and not the final word not he matter. But, if true the NHL shares some of the blame here.

Feaster came out and said they were aware of the situation but did not and do not agree with the NHL"s position on the matter but since the Avs matched it is mute and he will make no further comment. This could have been one big cluster bomb had the Avs not matched, one I'm sure all parties are happy to avoid. Expect a memo to go out to all GM's clarify the rule in plain English after this one.

It would have been funny to see ROR have to sit and wait for this to get resolved. I still think the Avs should have worked out a deal with one of the teams below them and let ROR go through waivers. Would have been too funny seeing Calgary lose two picks and burning half their remaining cap for this year and get nothing.

Dumb-ass move Feaster.

Why make a move to improve a team you are contending with for a playoff spot? A move, that was and would be matched? Altho, in two years that nice 6.5 mil QO will help you how?

I think Colorado made a mistake. They could have gotten the first overall pick. And ROR is not the star he's been made out to be during the negotiation problems with Colorado.
