It really comes down to whether their pick is top 6 (Monaha/Lindholm/Barkov)...or more like 10th or later.

If it's top 6, CGY would be making a Kessel trade like mistake.

If it's 10th or later, then it's a good move for CGY.

Or maybe ROR goes back to being a 20-30 point guy.

The Landeskog and Duchene's contract are up the same summer COL would have to give ROR a 6.5 M QO. Yikes.
Do you really think ROR would be able to turn the Flames around that much? He hasn't played hockey in two months. Yes a center is just what the Flames need, but ROR isn't ideal in a first line role, he won't make up for their atrocious goaltending or aging offense. They are better with him than without him, but by the time he starts playing it would be too late.

And even if they miss out on the top 6, the Avs could still end up getting Zadorov or Nurse out of this.
