Regardless of RORs salary demands, he's a valuable asset. His negotiating tactics leave something to be desired, but he's a very solid 2C with 1C potential. Future Selke finalist/winner without a doubt.

And that 1st round pick is looking like it will be top 5. In this draft, that pick is golden.
Good Post. From a hockey perspective adding another #1 RD with EJ doesn't look like a good move.

I think the OP's offer is good from a value perspective because I think the difference between Buff and Siemens is greater than the difference between ROR and Little to warrant a 1st coming from the Avs.

But I can understand the deal not making sense to the Avs because of positional need, and the desire to hold on to the draft pick.
