From my viewpoint he evolved into a selfish player that didnt make his teammates better.
I would say your view is showing short-term memory. Roy, prior to his knee injury was easily the best forward on this team. So he misses half of a season when the team goes on a great run, has a shoulder injury this past season in which he has a career worst year, and the fan base reduced him into a villain.
