There are quite a few fan bases that were reasonably willing to give up some quality packages for him. Many of which would benefit the Avs sooner rather than later. Gives me hope we'll get a solid return for him.
A cousin of mine texted me today, who is a Rangers fan, asking about ROR because he read an article about the MDZ rumors. I basically said you want him on your team, he went and looked at stats, watched vids, etc. Immediately he was open to the idea of getting him the team for a packaged MDZ deal. Teams are going to be willing to give something up, but I'm perfectly fine with the Avs holding out for the best possible deal. Even though I do want to see what is going to happen ASAP.
