He has been a great addition in my mind to the Canucks .It allows us to do so much more with him in the lineup. He can play on the 2nd line or 3rd line but can also play on the power play and penalty kill. He is a great well rounded player. He is a great help to us so we don't have to play Kesler and the Sedins more.He also looked good in the shootout the other night but hit the post. Thoughts everyone?

He has played great so far.. Making good plays in both zones, creating a lot of scoring chances, and seems to have good chemistry with everyone he plays with.

Hopefully he'll be able to keep it going and put up some good points in the playoffs

HE'S A 5'9 BEAST

Seriously hope we find a way to keep him around next year (ditch Booth perhaps?)

If he's 5'9 then Schroeder is under 5'7.

Anyways grateful to have him. We picked up the best centerman at trade deadline at a absolute steal. Good job Gillis. I hope this trade will trade for us. Who knows, maybe him and Kesler can find magic.

I like him.

Very skilled, sees the ice well, excellent passes. Hopefully there is enough time for him to perfectly adjust to our style of play.

Concerns
  • not sure how "Western-Playoffs-tough" he is, especially if/when we play LAK or STL
  • not playing on a stable line pre-Playoffs, due to circumstances

I prefer him at center. 2 of Higgins, Hansen, Kass, Booth and Mayray are adequate wingers for a good playmaker like Roy. If the minutes are close, I don't see it as a waste having him on the "third" line.

Good player, the only player besides the Sedins that can command the game with his vision and skill.

Definitely a great move. Also pk's and is good defensively. Good two way player and a proven playoff performer.

Whatever happens in the summer I'm glad that Roy is a Canuck right now.

Move looks fine for now, success of the trade comes down to playoffs and/or if he re-signs.

Playoff early exit and no re-sign = rather have the pick and prospect next year.

So far, he's proven he's an elite playmaker. I loved his goal yesterday in Dallas...the game was a different story. I'm praying Gillis can re-sign him this Summer. I think a Millionaires jersey with ROY 15 on it would be sick as hell :P

So far in the last 8 games since the deadline he has done well to adapt to a new team's system. The chances are there with the chemistry he is creating with his line-mates, but you know he can offer more to the table. It was a good deadline acquisition to fill a need, but it will be an even better deal if he comes up big in the playoffs and re-signs.

That was the nicest goal I've seen by a Canuck all season. A shift or two later he really showcased his playmaking abilities and created an excellent scoring chance.

I like him and he's been a great addition to this team.

One thing I have noticed is that he plays a bit soft and I'm worried to see how he plays against tough and big team teams in like playoffs. I hope I'm wrong and he rips it up!

Also I don't want him on the wing with Kes because that leaves Ebbett as our 3rd line centre and that just doesn't cut it. He'll likely get moved down when Higgy is back so I hope that's sooner rather than later.

Shanahan went soft on Keith.

he's been good as the players he's playing with - hard workers Higgins and Hansen..

I think he can produce a lot more if he was playing with Kesler and another good goal scorer..

potential is unreal...

can't have him with someone like EBBETT and expect him to produce ppg

Very good addition so far. He adds a more creative element and another layer of attack. We'll need him at full speed in the playoffs.

Good acquisition for the time being, it'll be a great acquisition if he re-signs. Schroeder could learn lots from him.

Our pk has gone beast mode since he's arrived. I love that he's been able to contribute in ways beyond just his offensive capabilities like that.

I'd like to see him on a line with Booth if that ever becomes possible.

I don't see him resigning to play on the third line. I know he's playing on the second line but on the wing and I'm sure he sees that if he can't play second line center there is a good chance he will end up on the third line in the end. Enjoy his last few games here.

Roy would be a great player for Schroeder to try to emulate. Undersized playmaking centreman who makes up for physicality with speed. It's perfect.

Should he hang around I would like to see him center Kass and Booth (if still here, probably not) or Jensen (if ready). Would be interesting to see what he could do with a lot of room.

I think he's adapted quite well considering the circumstances. I think Schroeder can learn from him as a post above said. I'd like to see him here in October and find some permanent chemistry with his teammates.

If he does not play soft he will get injured .. guys his size and skill must play soft and have big teeth to survive .. I like his 200' game

He's good defensively, he's made our pk a lot better.

He was playing wing those games he was throwing it up the middle so much.
