I understand that a lot of you haven't been unable to watch ROR, but there is a lot of underestimating on the trade board. People calling ROR overrated are clearly two things. 1) A Leafs fan 2) Haven't watched him play and judging him by his stats.
I've watched ROR plenty of times.... but not this season. In no way is he worth Trouba and Little given the current contractual holdout situation. Think of him as an option contract whose value is declining daily as it nears expiration. The longer he is out his value declines an equal amount. The list of buyers for your declining in value asset is narrowing as teams will soon have less to spend on players going forward and supply of available players is plausibly/likely to increase at the same time given the cap.
