I don't think this is right. First of all the 2nd year of the deal is on 6.5M, so Im pretty sure it is only a 6.5M QO based on that.

Secondly, I don't know how this stuff works, but Cap Geek just recently tweeted and said that if there is a Signing Bonus in the deal, then that will reduce the QO for his next deal. And there is a 2.5M signing bonus in the offer sheet.

So if Cap Geek is right, then I think the QO for the next contract would have to be either 5.25M or 3.75M, but Im not entirely certain.

Regardless, the Flames are a much improved team with ROR centering there top line. I doubt their pick is in the Top 10 with ROR, so IMO we should match this. ROR will prove himself to be worth the 5M in no time, and within 2 years he'll be worth the 6.5M QO.

We need to match.
