Ryan O'Reilly apologized for the lengthy contract saga.
O'Reilly's time as a restricted free agent holdout finally ended on Thursday with the Colorado Avalanche matching the Calgary Flames' offer sheet. "Sorry to everyone about the situation," O'Reilly said. "I'm very glad to say that it is over and i now can focus on what I love to do." We can't recommend grabbing him in standard leagues at this time. It's been nearly a year since his last NHL game and on top of that, it's not like he was a huge contributor from a fantasy perspective in the first place. In 2013-14, he might be an interesting sleeper, but for now, stay away from him.
