The main difference between the Sutter type "get in the playoffs at all costs" moronic Phaneuf-style deals and this one is that we are actually getting something in return that could improve us drastically now and in the long run, asset-wise and lineup-wise. This a young stud center we're talking about. There are two problems, first off we are going to have a very difficult time signing him in 2 years after this deal. The second problem is that ROR is not exactly elite offensively. Of course many teams do just fine without a top offensive center threat, but these teams don't pay their best center 6.5 million a year either.
