08:24 AM ET 02.07 | While some hope floated earlier in the week that the Ryan O'Reilly contract standoff might be solved soon, the week will end with some pessimism on the topic. With no softening of the O'Reilly camp's stance, that would seem to leave only two possibilities: a trade or an offer sheet from another team. One of the underreported aspects of this standoff is the growing possibility that another team could make O'Reilly a Group II free-agent offer sheet. There are many teams interested in making a deal for O'Reilly, but it's unclear whether the Avs are considering moving him. If they're not -- but another team really wants him -- they are free to offer O'Reilly any contract they want. Then the Avs would have their hand forced.

Kessel trade?

They thought it was hope that was floating in the pool, but it turned out to be something else.

Is this just a symptom of a dysfunctional management or is it the kid asking too much?

You'll have wait until the Prince of Irkness lands somewhere.

But you just know these rumours are going to start.
