10:30 PM ET 01.31 | The Colorado Avalanche are no closer to a new deal with forward Ryan O'Reilly and as Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports via Twitter, the club has no interest in trading him. Dater states that O'Reilly has numerous NHL clubs interested and are said to be calling the Avalanche to inquire about a possible deal. But the club remains firm on their desire to re-sign the 21-year-old rather than trade him away. O'Reilly is said to be seeking an annual payout of $5 million while the Avalanche are offering around $2.5 million. Recent holdouts P.K. Subban and Jamie Benn have signed with their respective clubs, the Montreal Canadiens and Dallas Stars and many around the hockey world feel that the clubs won the battle of the contract holdouts. This would not bode well for O'Reilly, who led the Avalanche in scoring last season.
