He could still get traded at the deadline, even if he signs.

Avs historically haven't looked kindly on holdouts.

Trade him to a team making a playoff push/run for picks and prospects (maybe a roster player, but playoff teams don't trade good roster players at the deadline).

ROR would get rewarded for his holdout by going to a playoff team, but them's the breaks.

That said, I doubt he'd get traded at the deadline. More likely at the draft, and even more likely over the summer.
