I'm not saying that a signed ROR is worth DD+ anything. ROR is a much better asset than DD but at this point it's not about a hockey trade - it's asset management.

The Avs, with their financial considerations and everything, do not have any leverage. For them it's asset management and maybe (if they're not keen on tanking) salvaging a playoff run. I hypothesize that they won't get many better offers than David Desharnais (who is VERY, VERY talented - I've never denied this. I just don't think he's a centreman in the NHL) and some defenseman between Kabs/Diaz/Weber.

We might disagree here on whether they have any leverage or not but I really don't think they're gonna get a "good" deal.

Eller would be a really good trade piece but I want to keep him, I see a lot of Pleks in him but with even better hands.
