In an email to the Denver Post, Ryan O'Reilly's father says his son's contract situation is not about the money and "never has been."

Brian O'Reilly also said he thinks the Avs don't value the character of his son. The elder O'Reilly even uses hypothetical math grades to back up his son's contract demands. "If my son was getting 95 in math we wouldn't ask him to get 65 so the rest of the students in the classroom could feel better about themselves," Brian O'Reilly writes in a very long note that is just the latest sign that this saga is unlikely to end with Ryan O'Reilly still in an Avalanche uniform.
