I don't think they have had a single decent offer for him. Who would we offer for a pretty unexperienced and unproven player like that who wants quit alot of money? Who would anyone offer?
-With the cap many teams have their hands tied.
-Teams are just not that willing to give up young homegrown, cheap, players of their own.
Toronto and Philly managed to work out the JVR for Schenn trade; Turris was traded for Rundblad; Hodgson for Kassian, and there are maybe a few other recent examples.
Greg Sherman isn't stupid. Nobody would pay that much for ROR. If they are very lucky, they could like get a "Luke Schenn". They may have to settle with a Rundblad, but they could very well only end up with even less on the table -- and at some point you gotta start to think about just giving ROR whatever he wants. While time passes ROR also gets a bigger incentive to just sign something.
