If he can play wing, then I'd have no issues paying him 5m. Depending on the cost to acquire, if CBJ would keep some of Umburger's salary (600k - we have a cap hit of 4m), I'm not sure who I'd want of the two. Probably ROR as I think he's the more skilled guy, and this team is one with a lot of role players, but has a lack of pure skilled guys.
