Yeah but ROR has 6 years left of club control. Plus you factor in the 1st rounder. Colorado's giving up 6 years of ROR and potentially 10 years of a first round pick for 100 games of Phil Kessel.

That would be an even better haul than a 21 year old Kessel got from Boston and that was with the extension. That would be a franchise crippling trade if Kessel decides to go to the highest bidder after next year. Because even with Kessel, Colorado isn't a contender.

That's still pretty brutal for Colorado.

It's not like there would be an issue negotiating an extension. Kessel did it once before when he came here.

They can't cripple their franchise for one year of Kessel. They're not contenders even with Kessel.
