Sorry, Jame, I don't buy it.

At the time Roy went down, along with Sekera, Monty and Leopold, he was one of the rare guys who would've gotten a passable grade at that point.
IMHO, Mike Weber was picking up his game as Roy went down. Not that they're completely related, but Mike has really solidified the second pairing.

That confidence boost on the back-end helps open things up on the offensive side too.
