If I was the Avs GM I would give RoR a long term deal and trade Stastny. That way they have 2 21 year old centers to build around. If they deal RoR because they don't want to pay and extra .5 to 1 mill I'm going to be so angry.
And RoR's agent has come out and said he isn't asking for 5 mill. They have been offered 3.5 on a 2 year, and 3.4 on a 5 year deal. If you can't bridge the gap on those amounts the Avs are in a world of hurt when Varly's contract comes up.
He said he isn't looking for $5M/year on a similar deal to that of Duchene (ie, a two year deal). Nothing in what he said excluded O'Reilly asking for $5M/year on a longer deal.
You need to have your lawyer goggles on when reading what agents say.
