If we acquire Ott and Clowe:
Sedin- Sedin - Burrows
Clowe - Roy - Kesler
Higgins - Ott - Hansen
Sesito - Lapps - Pinnizotto

Raymond will probably go in a trade.


And what would our cap hit look like with that line up? We can't afford Clowe, Roy and Ott (let alone Boyle that some dream of).

If Gillis gets Clowe too and a RH Dman I will be more than happy with him. He'll have redeemed himself for a lot of the crap moves he's made in the pass.

That's more excitement than I was expecting from Gillis at this time of the year. Hope he's a nice fit.

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....


I'm liking what I've seen out of Schroeder. He's filled in admirably if not stunningly this year. He's certainly got a future but I'm not convinced he's the answer for the third especially heading in to the playoffs. He's responsible defensively but his size is going to be an issue when the games get more intense.

Roy does not address that issue either. THAT is my major issue with this trade. I'm glad Gillis filled a gaping hole at centre. I'm glad we might have a guy that can dish the puck to Kesler and Raymond/Hansen/Kassian/Booth. I'm disappointed we still don't really have a 3C.

It's not a bad trade, it's just not a GREAT trade. It's "merely" a necessary one.

Funny the shift in 24hrs. Those saying Gillis has to do something (me included and I didn't think he was going to other than a bottom 6 pick up) in a cheery mood while the stand pat fans out of the wood works.

Oh cdc

And as far as a 2nd goes. If regher is worth 2 2nds and handzus a 4th. A 2nd is expected.

Now Roy has had a decent season in Dallas. He plays with some talented players there also in top. 6 and is still on a 60pt pace.

Connauton was having a he'll of a season with wolves points wise. Could we have got more in the summer for a prospect of hos calibre, yes. Also have feeling Gillis may have started feeling heat from aquilini to do something

Roy could also help Schroeder take his game to another level.


Learn the ropes of playing in this league as a small center.

People comparing Roy to Ebbett haha. People don't realize this is one of the best playmakers in the game right now. Arguably in the top 10.

It will look like that if he stops at Roy..Roy alone wont get this over the top ..Need more tinkering like acquiring Jagr and Clowe and another D for depth

46.7% in the faceoff circle....

I'm not sold on this being a good move as yet... unless this move opens up something else major.

the year before that he was 50.1% with buffalo

Roy will be our 2C.

When he returns, Kesler will be 3C.

don't you guys wanna win were in 4'th place without Roy and Kesler

if you look at the players being traded roy is one of the best

the cost was as good as you could possibly expect 2 2'nds are going for lesser players and I'd way rather trade cannaughton

Instead of signing Higgins at 2.5M like the reports suggest, i'd rather sign Roy similar to the Burrows deal at 4.5M (still lower than Kesler, what should be Gillis' arguments to Roy)

We need a 2nd/3rd line center, and now we got it. This helps our chances comes playoff time. I hope our line up would be healthy by then.

Wow, people running their mouths about not being happy about getting Roy...

Gladly give this guy 5 - 5.5 million for 6 years if we get rid of Booth. One of the most talented playmakers in the NHL.

So much for the needing size now he get a center 1 inch taller than Shroeder.
Where's he gonna play 2 center on 3rd when Kesler is back?

2nd rounder seems like overpayment for an undersized rental, but am I the only one who's excited to see what Roy can do for Kesler?

Yes, I'd rather have Jagr, but we are getting a 60 point playmaker who can fill in at C. Isn't that what everybody said Kesler needed?
