Not knowing much about Roy who before going to Dallas was an Eastern player. I don't follow the East let alone Buffalo save for Boston & Pittsburgh. I've always heard the name Derek Roy but attributed his point production to Eastern style of play i.e Less travel, grind & physicality thus easier to score.

He gets traded to Dallas and suffers a scoring drought. Most of his points coming in way from assists.
He becomes expendable due to UFA and so-so average play in Dallas.

The Canucks trade for him at the deadline. Initially I'm content because I was under the impression he was not the only player we were to acquire. Then I do a little more research and find out he's only 5'9 tall. Talk about small...

This guy better put up points in the PLAYOFFS. I don't care if he puts up sick regular seasons numbers. We got this guy for the PLAYOFFS. I have a 6th sense that Roy is going to get manhandled easily come playoffs.

Roy alone is such a WTF move. What we needed is Clowe & (2 goals in 1st game with Rangers), Torres, Chimera, Jagr, Pominville. Not just Mr. Derek 5'9 Roy. Hey while we're why don't we go for Steve Sullivan & Matthew Lombardi eh...

I hope Gillis knows what he's doing. I want him to prove me wrong. I see this Roy rental trade as completely suspect.

If you admittedly don't know about a player, how can you be a skeptic? Maybe what you really mean is your lack of knowledge makes you wary and you automatically assume it's not going to go well.

While I agree we could use another size and skill guy on the wing so we wouldn't have to rely on youth too much, Roy is a proven NHL-er and playmaker and will fill a hole we needed filled.

Did you watch him play? Maybe he was on adrenaline and trying to make a good first impression, but so far there's not much to be skeptical about.

What we needed and what we could get are not always the same thing. I don't know why some fans think Gillis could get any player he wanted. Some we can't afford. Others don't want to play here or just prefer somewhere else. Some are just overrated in general.

Roy looks to have been an excellent trade, especially with how little we gave up. He's already showing chemistry with Higgins and Hansen and got a well deserved assist in his first game with us. So, keep the faith (or rent some if you must, just make sure it holds up during the playoffs!)

And don't knock players who get most of their points from assists. Don't forget, that's where most of the twins' points come from too and only an idiot would say they don't contribute. Setting up a play is every bit as important as banging it home, and sometimes even more so.

Gillis' offer for Clowe was just as good as the Rangers but Clowe picked the Rangers (NTC). -- Nothing Gillis can do about that.

Pierre LeBrun said on the radio that Gillis offered 2 picks (probably 3rd + 5th) for Torres but the really early 3rd pick (basically late second) from San Jose (FLA's pick) was more appealing for Phoenix. -- Again unless Gillis offered a 2nd, which would be an overpayment IMO, nothing he can really do.


I'm happy with Derek Roy so far and I hope he keeps it up.

He did prove you wrong.

The team desperately needed what they lacked in depth. A centerman, not another goddamned winger.

Everyone is talking about how he wasn't having a good year in Dallas...

22 points in 30 games isn't a good year? That's 3rd on our team behind the Twins...

He was fine in Dallas and he will be fine here. Now we just need to re-sign him.

It was always about SuperKesler coming back, regardless of whoever we pick up. No SuperKesler? No advancing far into playoffs.

Roy has more than enough skill to thrive in this league. Just like St.Louis; height is a non-factor. He'll be fine. I doubt he's going to put up an 80 point season again given he's not going to be centering a top line, but he should probably be our best offensive player behind the twins.

I think just move along, but I can't resist either.

[Trade] Derek Roy to VAN
Roy is not a rental, Booth won't be bought out next year
Re-sign Roy now, in a week, or after playoffs?

And that's just the threads that aren't locked since we traded for him two days ago. Here's the ones for Clowe and Torres since the OP is so upset about Gillis not trying to acquire them:

[Trade] Torres to SJ
[Trade] Ryane Clowe to NYR
[Rumour] Canucks to trade for Raffi Torres
[Rumour] Canucks interested in Ryane Clowe
[Report] Clowe sweepstakes down to two teams.

This OP is the kind of guy who is not happy unless he is bellyaching about something. If we landed Shea Weber, he'd still manage to find something to complain about. There's just no pleasing some people. All they do is find fault and complain. What a pain in the azz.

Roy is a heck of a player. In my opinion, a better centreman than even Kesler in the terms of knowing how to use his wingers better, as well as his vision. He may be 5'9" but he plays bigger, and can handle himself in the dirty areas. I like him with Higgins and Hansen... This lets AV put Kesler with Raymond and Kassian.
