Just because the Colorado Avalanche opted to match the aggressive offer sheet the Calgary Flames tendered to restricted free agent Ryan O'Reilly on Thursday doesn't mean the drama is over.

According to TSN's Darren Dreger, the $6.5 O'Reilly will earn next season per terms of the deal is likely to impact other Avs players in arbitration cases, "perhaps teammate Matt Duchene among them," Dreger wrote on Twitter late last night.
