It doesn't mean that at all. Colorado hasn't even begun contract discussions w/ ROR yet. It's just a paper move.

By electing for team-initiated arbitration, it means ROR can only be offer sheeted between July 1st and 5th. Colorado has until late July to get him signed, and if they don't, ROR will choose either a 1 or 2 year deal.

This is a different management team than the last time w/ ROR (it was Greg Sherman's camp). Because of Feaster's offersheet, Colorado would of had to qualify him at 6.5. Now they might get that same automatic year for a little less (just as long as they don't drag him through the mud, and we haven't seen that angle from the new management in Colorado).

Colorado needs to figure out what's happening w/ Stasny before finalizing their plan w/ ROR, don't read too much into this small move.
