That said, we'll trade you DD + Weber + Danny Kristo for him
It is known that the Avs offered at least 2 deals. The first was a bridge contract 2 years $7m, same as Duchene. The second was 5 years $17m. Neither contract should be in the least insulting, and the first one is actually a pretty generous bridge contract considering Duchene outperformed ROR for 2 out of 3 years. ROR is simply upset that the Avs won't pay him more than Duchene (at this point I agree with the Avs, ROR hasn't earned more).
