Calgary signed him so they would have lost the picks. Once the contract was finalized ROR would have to have been put on waivers since he played in the KHL after the NHL season started (just like happened to the Blues a couple years ago). Since CLB is in last place they would have had the first chance at claiming him, which they would be pretty dumb not to and even if they didnt some other team would have potentially even COL if he lasted that high up the standings.
