Roy is an excellent PKer, solid defensively, although it is prone to making a great play on defense and then immediately turn it over. He's not really a playmaker though at times he tries to be...he should really shoot a lot more, he has an excellent wrister but he doesn't use it enough. Average on faceoffs, should be a consistent 30-40-70 guy.

But we definitely needed toughness, and Ott gives us some flexibility using him at wing or center.

Can anyone shed some light on Pardy though? Know next to nothing about him.
Ott is better at wing but great at faceoffs and solid pk. Pardy has negative value and his inclusion cost you $2 million on a guy who is a#7 d-man or saved you a prospect like Adam
