I disagree. I think there are probably a fair amount of teams that would gamble and give him that kind of contract. I don't think it's smart, but he's the kind of player GMs have a man crush on kinda like Mike Richards.

I could see Toronto or Florida giving him a deal like that, or possibly SJ or Dallas. Not sure what they have to offer to make the Avs interested though in terms of D. To me the only team out there that has something worth while that could possibly be moved is Phoenix and Yandle. I think Maloney might ask for too much in addition to ROR to make it work though.

Other than that I'd rather they just be patient and see what they can get at the deadline or possibly the draft. They might be able to include him in a package for a top pick.
