It is better to get a roster player and a pick then nothing at all other then negative attention.
They send the message to their RFAs that if they try to bully the Avs in negotiations, they will be the ones who are ****ed. It helps the tank this year, which has a twofold effect, one the obvious better prospect, btu even more importantly it gets Joe Sacco fired, and he's been holding the tema back even more than the craptastic defense. Plus his value won't be any lower this offseason than it is right now or will be at the deadline. He'll still be an RFA for 4 more years, and maybe after losing a whole years paycheck he eases off of his demands, making him even more appealing in a trade if you know he just wants to play again and will sign for cheap with a team that'll give him a top 6 role.
