But thats the thing. Im completely baffled.

I really dont see where ROR is coming from, or how he could justify a 2yr, 7M dollar deal as "low-balling".

As prideful, and as much character the dude is and has, I just dont get it.

Maybe he lacks confidence or self-esteem, and thus worries about his ability to replicate last season's results.

But just looking over the seasons, over the 200+ games he's played, Id argue hes outplayed the other two (been the best of the 3) for a grand total of 60 games. (the first 60 games of last year)

Because the last 20 games or so of last year, he vanished, and Stastny picked up the offense.

So to summarize, over his 3 years:

60 games, he was #1
20 games, he was #2
140 games, hes was #3

Am i just being too harsh on the guy?
