I wouldn't call this season "improvement" for Roy. He doesn't have the natural offensive talent Briere does either. It's unlikely he'll ever produce at that level.
I think you are overvaluing Briere's offensive talent. Outside the one year 95 point explosion on the immensely offensive talented 06-07 Sabres he's been around a 60-75 point player. Roy not only matches that with his recent 81 point season last year and his 65-70 point year this year but he also plays better defensively. Roy plays the PK on a top 10 PK team. Briere may be a better known player but I don't think he's much better than Roy if at all better than Roy.
