We was loved beyond belief the first two years in Colorado.
He was an absolute fan favorite after stepping in as an 18 yr old 2nd rounder and immediately being one of the 3 best defensive forward on the Avs. He showed his offense in the first 20 games and than it kind of tailed off when he hit a wall (not surprising with his kind of linemates).
He started than to break out offensively at the end of his sophomore season.
So you are completely wrong in your assessment. I think that if ROR would have been drafted by the Leafs, you would value him at Kessel level right now ( he would have put a crapload of points next to him) ....
