You determine if the cost is worth the return , or not. The goal is to make your team better , and you do that if, when you can. Certainly we can all agree that is needed for this team , no one can position this as we don't need to improve can they?
I don't disagree with this. I just think that Burmistrov>>ROR. Maybe not right now, but I bet in 3 years they won't even be close when it comes to importance on their team.

I do agree we aren't getting ROR for spare parts. However, I think his contract demands hurt what Colorado will get for him, because now more than ever, cap space is considered along with age, talent level, and potential.

Little might be enough to get it done. Little + Postma is a very good deal for Coloraddo.
