With the exception of Burns, Roy is more valuable than any of those other players.
If anything it'd be McNeil + probably at least a 1st rounder for Derek Roy.
Roy prior to this season was a 25 - 30 goal scorer, 70 - 75 point pace player the previous 4 season and he also is trusted to kill penalties. Not sure if people realize how hard that is to find. It seems like everybody has written him off after last season. Even before then it seems like he's always one of the must underrated players in the league.
He is exactly what Chicago needs and would be properly slotted in as the # 2 center behind Toews unlike in Buffalo where he's asked to do to much as the # 1.
