His value to ROR is pretty close....
How about Hanzal + Klesla For RoR + 3rd; might be beneficial for both sides?
Yes...Clearly Gormley who has yet to even play a game in the NHL has higher potential than EJ. What are you basing this off of? All the games you've watched of Gormely and EJ, and have reached this decision after carefully evaluating them both? Impressive. Watching Avs games, Coyotes games, and Portland Pirates games? Or are you just making things up with absolutely nothing to back it up. I'll go with the latter.
Yes, a defensman who has done absolutely nothing in the NHL holds around the same value that a 21 year old forward who is great defensively coming of a 55 point season. Literally the same!!
And yeah...that deal is not beneficial to the Avs. I would say ROR is just as good defensively as Hanzal, and he is only 21. Not to mention his career high is 20 points higher than Hanzal's. He is just as good and better now, and has way more potential. Does not even get a consideration.
