I really hope that's not how the operation works here, but it wouldn't surprise me.
It doesn't really matter whether WGR was too hard on Roy. The question is, do you think Derek Roy is good enough to be Buffalo's #1 center moving forward? If not, they're not resigning him, so trade him away and start searching for a real #1 to spend money on. Getting a player who can help the lineup for the next two years without hurting their cap space is a bonus as far as I'm concerned. First you have to admit this was not a team that was challenging for the cup before trading away Derek Roy.
