I think Roy would thrive in Chicago in a properly cast role as a center with a high amount of offensive zone starts while Toews and Bolland do the heavy defensive lifting. Chicago would be able to exploit matchups for him that Buffalo can't--because he's the only top-6 center on the roster--or won't--because they rarely play him with Vanek anymore.

Buffalo gets two good young centers in Kruger and McNeill/Pirri, plus a mean winger in Beach. Seeing Kassian and Beach in the same top-9 would be a thing to behold.
Agreed, wouldn't mind seeing that trade happen.
