a la J.Staal, but I don't think a trade for him is worth it...because he will requre an expensive contract that he may struggle to live up to(asking for 5 years 25 mil) plus you have to give up pick/prospect/player assets much like the Kessel deal.
You guys really never watched ROR play. Big, fast, skilled and shows up in physical, important games. He's the type of player you go to war with. Comparing his stats to DD is ridiculous. DD can't win faceoffs, is terrible at defensive coverage and gets rolled over by bigger teams. Not sure what DD's home/away stats are but I'm guessing most of his points are at the Bell. The only reason DD is not sitting out right now is because the media would make a huge deal out of it.
