I'm not comparing what Edler is worth, to what ROR is worth.
I'm pointing out that Edler is a ufa this summer, who I expect will be getting a sizeable new contract

Edler can wait until July 1st and have his agent contact every team in the league, then go sign with highest bidder if he chooses.

ROR will not be a ufa for another 3 and 1/2 seasons. His KHL contract, says if his NHL team makes a more lucrative offer then his KHL contract, Metallurg will not interfere in that contract being concluded.

The Avs can either sign ROR to a more lucrative deal then his KHL contract and keep him. Or, they can shop him around for a strong return with one of the deeper pocketed teams in the NHL and complete a sign and trade deal.

The Avs can certainly bring back more then an impending ufa, who'll be very sought after if he gets to the ufa market.
