I would be absolutely SHOCKED if he didn't make our final roster. He has nothing left to prove their. He isn't going to be expected to produce at a high level or be our #1 center this year. They will ease him in much like they did with Myers and in order to do this Derek Roy will be on our team to start the season unless an offer comes about that darcy simply can't turn down. I really don't understand why some people don't consider him as an elite young player. He is probably more NHL ready than Galchenyuk and very close to Yakupov. He had mono and a high ankle sprain that is why he played "poorly" in the playoffs. And just so you all know he still had 10 points in 11 games. Buffalo fans seriously shock me with how negative their outlooks are; it's okay to expect an ETLITE prospect to make a team every once and a while.
