[Trade] Derek Roy to VAN

876 posts in this topic

Gillis hater go back under your bridge. Gillis just filled our biggest need and we also are getting Selke..I mean Kesler back within a week.

If Roy clicks in Van, MG will find a way to keep him long term.

This deal happened with the emergence of Frank Corrado, Peter Andersson and Henrik Tommernes. Connauton became a redundant player. Great deal by MG...filling a need we desperately had to fill.

Terrible trade! An undersized UFA, at the end of his contract, for our best D prospect and a 2nd in a deep draft? Total fail. We're not exactly deep on prospects, and we just gave up two more for a 2 month rental

My hope is that AV keeps him a 2nd C when Kes comes back and move Kes to the RW. Roy is a playmaker and can dish out passes to Kes.

Going to say this. The Roy deal smells like one which the Canucks could utilize to put Kes at RW. Roy is small as crap but he is one hell of a set up man and for the sake of preserving longevity for Kes it makes sense to move him to RW as he would be less likely to be injured

Not a fan of this trade. Roy is a rental and MG just gave up our best D prospect and 2nd round pick. This years team is not going to win the Stanley Cup. This trade is not worth the price that was paid.

Good job Gillis, nice bargain. Even with him being a rental this is still a good move. Realistically, Connaughton wouldnt have cracked the lineup with the back end so strong anyway.

46.7% FO doesn't really inspire confidence in taking the necessary responsibilities as 3rd C on this team, assuming Keslord comes back guns blazing...

My only concern is what the future holds now for Jordan Schroeder.

Roy is a second liner, not a third liner.... We have Schroeder on the 3rd line, and he's doing fine playing there. Kesler will be playing RW with Roy down the middle. Look what LA gave up for Regher.... This is a solid trade....

Awesome trade! We fill a need, we get a leader who's also a centerman, and all we give up is a draft pick and a defenceman! I love it!

After this year, we should buy out booth and have this as our top 6.

Sedin-Sedin-Burrows

Higgins-Kesler-Roy

Re-sign Roy to second line money on a 2-3 year contract.
