My side of all of this, is that a player like ROR is hard to come by (same as a young PMD) but is also something we need more right now. Del Zotto just isn't playing up to par where we need him to play right now. (on the PP for example) If he was making smart plays and putting up points and improving our PP I might be singing a different tune, but we need a guy like ROR right now and again, it's just a matter of giving something valuable in return for something valuable. Del Zotto isn't playing on the top pairing and losing him (in my opinion) is worth it for ROR because Girardi, Staal, McDonagh, even Stralman is impressive. If they want a D-Man and ask for Staal, Girardi, McDonagh, we say "hey now" and walk away pretty quickly, but MDZ is more expendable because the things we want from him just simply aren't happening to a degree which makes us say "no" when we're talking about bringing a guy like ROR here. It's honestly a matter of opinion and I can see where you're coming from, but in the world of "give to get" it's worth it for ROR. He would be loved here.
I respect that point of view.
I don't think RoR is "needed", what is needed is Richards to get his head out of his ass and start playing up to his salary. $12 Million and playing like crap, geez.
RoR would solidify the team down the middle for years to come, I completely see the value there. I disagree on the price to get it.
