I could also see the Avs proving a point here. They aren't a playoff team with or without him and they may find satisfaction in making him sit. It won't hurt his value. Bite the bullet, make him sit, trade him on draft day.
This makes some sense. Having ROR available to trade on draft day gives a team a lot of options. Though my guess is he will be dealt before the trade deadline.
