Seems like a good way to miss the playoffs and have ROR as your 1C next year to me.
I trade Sbisa for ROR. If that's 'dismantling the defense', then dismantle has been having parties I've not been invited to.

Second, no, I wouldn't trade Ryan during the year, I trade him in the offseason depending on what happens with the other two, as previously stated. If ROR signed for 4.5 then that would be an addition of what, two million this year? Doesn't seem crazy.

Successful teams have made much larger trades than a 5th defenseman for a second line center.
