seems extreme. I can see why Colorado hasn't signed him yet.
I know centres score less in general but still seems he has more to prove to warrant
that kind of money.

...but it is worth mentioning, ROR will probably cost twice as much as Burmi on his next contract. Burmi will probably cash in somewhere around 2-2.5M per year for a couple years.

Compare that to ROR who wants something like 5

5,000,000 ROR
5,750,000 Toby
5,250,000 Kane
5,200,000 Buff
3,900,000 Pav
4,400,000 Olli
4,400,000 Ladd
5,000,000 Bogo
5,000,000 Wheeler
3,500,000 Little

That would be 47.4MM towards a 64.3MM cap and leave 16.9 MM to fill out the rest of the roster.

1,600,000 Slater
1,700,000 Stuart
0,650,000 Wright
0,866,667 Thor
1,000,000 Postma
1,000,000 Redmond

Which leaves us with 10.083MM left to add a backup goalie, three bottom 6 forwards, and a couple depth D men. It wouldn't be a dire situation, but it would put them quite a bit closer to the cap. Are the Jets comfortable there?
But hey. you gotta pay to play! I would take him over Burmi as well. Love the excitement Burmi brings to the team but we need points as well to win games, If ROR can produce points while playing a solid defensive game, he may be what we need to get more Ws.

But obviously that is managements decision
