All this enthusiasm about ROR makes no sense to me whatsoever, for the following reasons:
1)There is no evidence in his history that he is an elite C, but rather a high-50s, 1/2C tweener.
2)We already have a proven one of those in Little, and 2 more 'maybes' in Burmi and Scheifele.
3)There is broad agreement that what we actually lack is a true elite centre, a la Duchene, or better.
4)The hysteria that is building up around this kid means whoever trades for him will likely overpay. It will be a big price, bigger than Burmi...and our cupboards are not exactly well stocked. I don't mind paying a premium for a true star, but there are only two of those on the Avalanche and neither's initials are ROR.


Edit: Beat me to it, Sully. While you were writing your last line, I was using the same words in my opening line.
