When did ROR become so overrated? Seems like an average 2C to me.

An average 2C who is 21 years old, led the league in takeaways last year, and supposedly had the upside of a defensive 3C. In one year he shattered his ceiling and that is probably why has so much value. Wouldn't that be valuable to you too? Even if he is a flash in the pan offensively, he's got an incredible work ethic, good at faceoffs, excellent defensively, great teammate, etc etc.

Cammi is not fetching ROR. That being said I would not trade Sven for ROR.

Giordano + Backlund is the most I'd give up for ROR. Although, Backlund looks like he has finally found his game.. He has looked amazing to start the season. So this proposal might not last depending on his remaining play.

That would be a hard sell for most Flames fans.... You drive a hard bargain, but I accept.

From what you described it sounds like he played over his head for a season and, while he might very well be capable of repeating or improving, he would need another similar season or two before having anywhere near the value you guys want. Especially if 5M is true for his salary demands.

He did not play over his head, that is a mischaracterization, or perhaps more accurately described as a lack of understanding of the situation. He may be the best player on the Avs' team, but he simply has not warranted the contract he is reportedly asking for.

He was matched against top lines and outproduced them. His line was dominant at time, which had a lot to do with Ryan and his ability to produce turnovers. He also is a great playmaker and can be really clutch at times.
