I think depending who you talk to, Morin + Pirri + a pick MIGHT get it done. I would especially love Pirri in Buffalo. Roy's still a 70 point guy when he's healthy and fills a HUGE need for the Hawks right now (and no doubt he'd thrive in Chicago on a line w/ Hossa). The reason I say it might get it done is because I feel like there's not really a consensus as to what Buffalo and our fans want to pursue in exchange for Roy. Some say move him for grit, some say move him for scoring, some say move him just to get his attitude outta the locker room (and in reality, I think it's a combo of all three). Bottom line is, he's either gonna be a Blackhawk or a Duck at some point in the next year, but he's gotta get his head right before making any move b/c he's a player that any trade they make has the potential to REALLY help all parties involved.
