Can colorado keep o'reilly?

Ryan o'reilly is set to become a restricted free agent this year. If Colorado wants to retrain him they'll have to give him a qualifying offer of at least $6.5 million, negotiate a long term deal, or elect an arbitration meeting. If Colorado did an arbitration meeting Reilly could choose a 1 year or 2 year meeting. If o'reilly is awarded less than $6.5 mill on an arbitration meeting it'd be interesting to see how o'reilly would react. Bottom line, Colorado going to an arbitration meeting would give Colorado a new relationship with its players. Either way it'll be interesting to see how Colorado and o'reilly handle this contractual situation
