What a shame Colorado had to go and ruin it. This would've been the worst move of all-time.

In all seriousness, I can't think of anything worse. Can you?
Couldn't the Flames tell ROR to just sit at home while they paid him and not put him through waivers this year and for him to start playing next year? Seems like a better scenario than losing a 1st and 3rd pick plus the player if they could have done it that way. The NHLPA probably wouldn't be happy with that scenario though.

Too bad the Avs matched though.. This would've been an interesting story to follow.
