His value is down because of injuries -- that's bottom line. If he was closer to career norm, Sabres would have received far more. But he's not. Will he one back from injury, we don't know. Could be a great pickup but injury and another surgery diminishes his value. You can't argue that. I doubt he's tradeable if the surgery had been known.
On the plus side, he comes back in November playing at career levels and demand would huge at trade deadline. I think.
I think Both teams did well on deal. Unless Roy doesn't play this year for some reason. Highly unlikely. Sabres were not getting more based on Roy's play over last 1.5 seasons.
