not to mention what it says to the team if you sign this RFA to a big money long term deal when no other RFA here has been.
That's an overpayment. ROR can be had (by any team he cares to sign with) for a first and a second pick (based on the fact that ROR is looking for 5 million/season, the Avalanche are unwilling to pay him that and the compensation for that contract is a first and a second). Desharnais + Kristo + 2nd > 1st in my book. I would personally stop with Desharnais (if we get ROR he's the centre most likely to be forced out of the lineup) and a second (and maybe a late round pick to sweeten the pot).
