Nope, that's why the Avs are in control of the situation. ROR is an RFA until he's 25 right now, 26 if he doesn't play this year.
Avs have 3+ years of controlling ROR. We can wait potentially that long to trade him, or if we don't get the right trade, we can still bite the bullet and resign him to the 5M.
In fact, I have a feeling if ROR isn't traded by the offseason, theres still a decent chance he'll sign with the Avs once we see what some of the other RFAs get in the offseason.
