To me that isn't worth it, part of the reason is that we have Girgensons who imo will be able to do what he can in a few years.

A trade would be a more realistic option
Girgensons is a prospect so until he can perform at that level you just hope he can be as effective as RoR. Additionally, offer sheeting RoR and having him in the lineup you'd hope he'd improve your team so you end up picking near the tail end of the 1st vice the beginning. You don't want to be like Edmonton where you picked up a complimentary piece and it didn't improve you (Penner).
