Seriously, ROR proved he can be a very good 2nd line center last season. The issue I see is that as long as the Avs have Stastny and Duchene as well, ROR will be relegated to the 3rd line center as long as those two are healthy. To distribute the minutes properly somebody has to move to wing (Duchene is really the only option there and he hasn't look good when it has been tried), or somebody needs shipped out. While I think the best option would be to sign ROR and ship out Stastny, I just don't see that happening with this management team. Stastny and Duchene have both played good solider during this and ROR asked for a bunch more money and signed a contract in the KHL.
But that's not what happened or what Avs plan was. They gave him PP time last year. They gave him every chance to earn offensive minutes. They didn't pull Landeskog off his line to get Duchene going. Avs want O'Reilly to provide offense.
