Whats your impression. We dont want to give our hopes up. But Roy could be electric if he played we really good players. DOnt get me wrong he is already electric right now with anyone he plays with.
He has been electric
in preseason games
The key will be how he looks during his two game "audition" when Connolly is suspended.
And the only way I see Derek Roy playing on the top line is if Satan isn't signed right away and Ruff decides to have a 1st line of Drury-Roy-Kotalik.
But I would expect Roy to play on the 3rd line in the regular season if he's on the team. He won't get enough ice time on the 4th line and I don't think Ruff is ready to play him on one of the top two lines. Heck, they haven't even tried Drury at wing yet and I can't see Roy knocking Drury or Briere out of the top 2 center spots.
