There have been far too many cases of players playing way over their heads for a year and then falling off the face of the planet.
I understand where you are coming from, but we're not going to sell him for anything less than what we think he can become. I think the Avs are better waiting out the year. He needs to sign a bridge contract and the Avs have all the leverage.
If you don't want to give up assets for what we believe will become a 60-70pt selke center than don't bother making an offer. He won't be sold for less just because he isn't signed. He could be a huge piece for the Avs in the future and won't be traded for anyone who won't be a huge part of the future.
