Agreed, only way we come out on top is if that pick is Top 10, arguably Top 5.

If we turn that pick into one of the following, it'll be a good trade IMO:

Jones/Mackinnon/Drouin/Lindholm/Barkov/Monahan/Nurse/Nichushkin/Shinkaruk


That's about 9 guys, so basically a Top 10 pick, maybe a couple more but these guys are sure things IMO. Anyone else and we could lose the deal.



I'm a fan of Sherman playing hardball in trade, Im glad that he understood his trade value and wanted a lot in return, but it just really bit us in the ass.

So do we wait a full week to see how long the Flames fall or do we sign him ASAP to try and salvage the season?

I'm in the verge of tears, screw the picks this was never suppose to happen. A big F U to ROR I thought you were better then this but who wouldn't sign that contract. I don't care what anyone says a 1st and 3rd does not to us justice.

Personally, I like the idea sending him to the flames so we have some opportunities to have Bordeleau crush him.

Exactly. We aren't matching this.

At the same time, youd crippled and already poor team in your division that cant really rebuild since they wont have a pick in the top 3 rounds and their farm is pretty weak as it is.
Calgary isn't getting a top 5 pick this year. Clearly by getting RoR they are also going to retain the services of Kipper, Iginla, et al. With that core, they might not make the playoffs, but I don't see them getting a top 10 pick.

Wait! Let them lose as many games as possible before getting ROR.

So would he be a rfa with Calgary in two years? Would they have to qualify at $6.5?

Best case scenario. Avs and Flames finish in the bottom 3, Avs walk away with MacKinnon and Jones.

Worst case scenario, something that is not that.

So sorry, guys.

I was told by the man himself that this wasn't even an option, but I guess the 5m per offer did make him commit.

Don't know what to say, will try to talk to him sometime this week.
Has he signed it? I heard it was just offered...

Thanks Calgary, if true!

If they match, they'd probably do it sooner rather than later. Otherwise, no reason to let the Flames have him early.

Well this is messed up. 6.5mil QO. Really? ROR must become a very good 1st line C to warrant that contract.

Screw you ROR. I wish you nothing but bad luck (resultswise, not injury) in your future career.

Or hope that one of Barkov/MacKinnon/Lindholm/Gauthier/Monahan/etc are ready in 2 years.

You wouldn't hear about it if he didn't sign it.

Dreger said the offer sheet has been filed. That means it has been signed and sent to the league. Avs have 7 days to match.

Idk guys, Calgary is pretty damn bad.

This pick will be in the top 10 for sure, I'd think. Definitely top-5 potential.

Take the picks I think.

What do you mean? This is not good.

A $6.5 QO due the same years Duchene, Landeskog, and Varly are due for extensions.

ROR is a goner. I hope he has a horrendous career and drowns in his money.

Flames could be 7-10-3 by the time Avs have to make up their minds. It would be very likely to be a top 10 pick with that record.

If Flames are 10-7-3 on the other hand, we're looking at a real chance of the pick being 15-30.

I think we will, the $6.5 million QO is way too much.
