I think the opposite. Sounds like a lot of teams are in on this, and teams will kill to get a player like ROR in their lineup. I think the Avs will do just fine on the return.
Just based on the fact that he's 5'9" and 146lbs. I realize he's been producing well but ask yourself this, 'why would Sabre fans even be willing to give him up' if he's been producing and playing as well as it seems?
My guess is (and it IS a guess since I haven't seen him play in a while) that he's a little bit like Mike Ribeiro. He's a very, very strong offensive player but defensively, he leaves a lot to be desired. That's just my hunch. I will check out the next few Sabre games though 'cuz I want to get some looks at Myers, Sekera and Hodgson as well.
