A player loses a lot of value when they're on the trading block and not signed and from what I've read Avs fans have might be over stating RoR's value a bit.
(Btw I was an Avs fan before the Jets came back, so I've seen a lot of RoR.)
Ummmm, not at all comparable. Turris was coming off a season in which he put up 25 points in 65 games. At that point in time Turris was already being mentioned as a bust and there were significant concerns whether he'd ever be an effective NHLer due to his apparent inability to add mass to his frame.
