Calgary just traded presumably a GREAT first round pick and a 3rd. Yes, the 6.5 QO is overpaid, but they are not going to let him walk.

They'll try to get a longterm deal, and at worst, overpay an additional year at qualifying RoR @6.5 if he doesn't agree to a longterm (or trade him).

Calgary won't walk and RoR won't be a UFA before his 7 years.
