08:23 AM ET 03.07 | Times, and terms, certainly have changed for Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly, who joined Colorado together for the 2009-10 season. That first season, Duchene and O'Reilly were best buddies, seemingly doing everything together. They had so much in common, so much to be thankful for and so much time to grow together. They rooted for each other. I'm not sure they even speak to each other now. After the Avs regained O'Reilly's services by matching the Calgary Flames' offer sheet for the restricted free agent and holdout a week ago, Duchene used only quick, politically correct answers to sum up his feelings about O'Reilly's pending arrival. On multiple occasions, he said "each player has his brand" and O'Reilly is "a good player."

Denver Post seem a bit obsessed with Duchene having to be offended by the O'Reilly contract. Just as Dater seem obsessed with Paul Stastny and Avs having to trade him.

More reporting, less trying to create news. Stop it with the tabloid stuff.

I was just thinking the same thing. Dater is known for trying to create the story, not report on the story.

For a guy that's never really done ...well...anything, he gets an awful lot of press does Mr. O'reilly

Very true Slappy but I would be more comfortable with the higher end tabloid stuff, like which players wife is sleeping with another player or perhaps even another players wife, or maybe we could get a thread about the reasons why Florida is so bad, maybe along the lines of saying Dineen is secretly funneling the teams equip money into a timeshare venture in Siberia and to break even he has to sell Fleischmann back to the caps for 1M Rubles that brings Thomas home where he belongs

Douchene will be plenty happy with O'Reilly come contract time.

OK. When you're right...........you're right. BTW, I've got two weeks in that timeshare next January. I understand that's the high point of the vacation season in Siberia?

Oh bunk buddies, I thought you were saying they were no longer friends with benefits. Glad we cleared that up.

It's just a clever way for him to get out of work (or chores).
