08:15 AM ET 02.14 | Ryan O'Reilly, nicknamed "Factor," has become a significant factor in his absence from Colorado this season -- and now it seems he'll become one when he's traded. He is a restricted free agent. "We've heard things, but it's out of our control," Avs center Paul Stastny said. ... "But as a good buddy, you hope for his success, and you hope you get something in return, someone who can make an immediate impact." O'Reilly's 55 points were tied for 70th in the NHL and his 18 goals were tied for 117th. ... "He's making a decision maybe he'll regret. Maybe he won't. It all depends on how it works out for him," [Shane O'Brien] said. "It's the bad side of hockey, the business side that no one likes. But I can see both sides of the dilemma."

Agreed.

The NHL loses last year's Norris Trophy winner and this years leading goal scorer for defensemen to a freak injury but we get O'Reilly?

The NHL has it's 1st European GM with Jarmo Kekalainen in Columbus but we get O'Reilly?

The Flames actually scored 7 goals but we get O'Reilly.

The Blues have been removed from my Christmas Card list but we get O'Reilly?

This thread is "facted."

I had never heard of O'Reilly until FN started posting threads about him. Still haven't figured out what all the attention is about.

You know, we dont have to talk about O'Reilly, we can hijack this FN bullcrap and make it about anything we want.

"It's the bad side of hockey, the business side that no one likes."

Au contraire - it's the business side of hockey that makes money for the owners (despite what they say) and lets mediocre players "earn" millions of dollars while being healthy scratches.

I was kinda sad to hear Redden was a healthy scratch (NOT)

Perhaps its due to him having the most Irish name in the league ?

I didn't figure the Blues were ever on your Christmas card list.
