Their production isn't relatively equal.

No, actually... in the other years Spezza has averaged a 34-71-105 point pace per 82 games. And that's an average of 3 years, In Roy's best year he was on pace for 85 points (20 points less).

Spezza hasn't cracked 95 points a season because he has missed a lot of time due to injury.

Roy is better defensively than Spezza?

Vanek is a quality player who has averaged 40 goals a year for the past 3 years. Surely, he must cancel out one of the big-3 wingers.

If you swapped the two... you'd find out why a 73 point season is hugely disappointing for Spezza and why a 70 point season is perfectly acceptable for Derek Roy.
