You do realize that they'll have to pay ROR 6.5M per season minimum in one year + what's left of this one ? And for that privilege, they're giving up a potentially high pick which could be Jones, McKinnon or Drouin. High risk, low reward type move for team that is NOT in win now mode. It's bad on any level you can think of. Maybe ROR will take a huge leap forward and be a heart and soul 80 pts 2 way warrior and their pick will not be high but chances aren't that good that this will happen.
