While Roy has had decent numbers over the years, scoring 20 – 30 goals consistently (other than last years injury shortened season, but he did have 35 points in 35 games), there are numbers on his stat sheet that tell me this acquisition doesn’t make a lot of sense.
5′-09″ and 188lbs.
Really? A small centerman? That’s what this team is in need of?
I suppose what the team is actually in need of, is some offense. I suppose Roy does fulfill this need, so I suppose at the right price, this could be a good acquisition. Who would it be though?
I’m not sure what expendable asset we have that would make this trade work. I’m not buying it.
