You say OK, if we don't match you will pick ROR up for free on waivers. So what will you trade us for a 4th round pick. You make a trade for a good roster player or prospect/pick or combination with Columbus.

Once that deal is done, you don't match. ROR is a Flame but now must clear waivers. Columbus takes him and all they gave up was whatever they gave the Avs, who now have Calgary's 2 and 3rd and whatever they got from Columbus for their 4th round pick.

You get good assets back and you get to screw the Flames and ROR who now has to stick it out in Columbus for at lest two years.

But if you are the Avs you do this with all teams picking up waiver player before your pick. That way you assure yourself you get something. If not, the waiver pick comes to you and you grab him back.

If I'm the Avs that is exactly what I do.

And we thought the Sutter family was entertaining. Bountiful's meltdown is more entertaining than July 8th 2011.

What else would be nice if the Avs worked that scenario is that Calgary would have to pay the 2.5 signing bonus and it counts towards their cap this year thereby burning 2.5 cap space for future deals.

The more I think about the more I like it. Dubinsky , prospect and a 2nd for the Avs 4th? Why not.

And I meant to say Calgary's 1st and 3rd!

There are already news releases on the official Avalanche site saying they are matching and a synopsis of Sherman's news conference.

I doubt they are back tracking.........but if they do...........DANCING BANANAS

I'm hearing that both the Flames and the Avs are asking for an official ruling from the NHL since there seems to be some discrepancy about the rule. Calgary has come out and said they disagree with Daley's comments and do not think ROR has to clear waivers. The Avs want clarification because if he does have to clear waivers they may be able to parlay him into more than Calgary's 1st and 3rd.

Avs said at the beginning they would match then this story about waivers broke. I still think they match but if I were them I'd be looking to see if I could do a deal first with Columbus. The problem is the salary may be too high for their liking.

In case anyone was wondering, Ryan O'Reilly has taken his medical with COL and signed his contract with the Avalanche.

What could have been. It really would have been nice to have some intrigue.

What is getting lost amongst the cow shit slinging is The Lames owner was front and centre during the lockout.

Two months later, he's giving his GM the OK to pay a 2/3 line centre coming out of an entry level deal a contract that guarantees more than $6.5 M a season for years to come.

That kind of hypocrisy is normally saved for Bruins and Blackhawks.

Whoa, good to be back. Nice to see some have stuck around.

I don't think anyone has pointed this out yet, but we can just all laugh at the irony of the situation? The Flames front office spent all their brain juices coming up with ways to structure the deal to deter the Avs from matching, only to find out that Sherman ended up saving Feaster's job (inadvertently, I think) by matching.

It just doesn't get any better in the Northwest. The drama always tends to be upstairs, never on-ice.
