They fought tooth and nail to keep Duchene to a bridge contract after his ELC expired. They're doing the same with ROR. They'll do the same with Landeskog.

Duchene and Landeskog will be up again next summer along with McGinn and Varlamov. They've recognized that they need to be very careful in their early contracts because deal can, and will be, used as precedence.
Agreed. As far as developing , one of the players actually has and produced to a degree that would look great on the other . Probably no point as I doubt Colorado would take that package anyway.
