It's not like the offseason where there's no games going on. They need him back out there helping them right now, so if your gonna match, might as well do it asap.

Meh, the Flames will just back the Brinks truck up long before he ever becomes a RFA.

If it can be in a hockey mad small town like Calgary, where he has the chance to be elevated to godly status, so much the better, right?

Complete speculation on my part, of course.
With the virtual abolishment of front loading to get better average cap hit, I don't think we'll see any sort of 8 year deal at low cap hits for anyone. If he thinks he is worth 5 mill now, he likely thinks he will be worth 7 mill in his prime. He doesn't care about comparable salaries since he is making more than all of his comparable RFAs by sitting out the longest.

It was smart of him and it worked. But it also means that if he can use that QO as his leverage, he will do it. He is young and confident, why should he take a long term safe salary and risk being underpaid?

I don't think its a coincidence that the match came minutes after the 2-0 CGY lead haha.


Glad he's back. He's worth more then a middle 1st and a 3rd.

It'll be hilarious if the Flames end up with the #1 pick now. Avs fan will have a heart attack.

Good for Colorado. Hopefully RoR lives up to the deal.

I'd take the picks. Not only do you have a plenty of center depth as it is but on top of that, they'd be rolling the dice on an unproven player.

Add to that the fact that he seems very entitled coupled with a prima donna attitude and that's the perfect recipe of a guy I wouldn't want in my locker room.

He's acting like Radulov, basically. Nobody in his position is worth that amount unless they'd post much higher numbers. My 2 cents.

Didnt even think about it from the perspective that they get RoR back when they match.

Not to mention they now have to offer him 6.5 million in 14-15 so he will clearly walk

So you see the double standard.

At least I'm not the only one.
