ROR has more than a semblance of a two-way game, but unfortunately he thinks he is worth $5M per x 5 years. Remember now, the guy hasn't even cracked 20 goals and he put up 55 points last year on a team that lacked any offensive dynamos outside of Landy and Downie. ROR declining $3.5 per from the Avs leads me to personally believe that he has no confidence in reaching those numbers again any time soon and is looking to cash in on his breakout season that luckily happened for him during the 3rd year of his ELC. This situation can easily backfire like the Dubinsky one.
