Roy is a solid second line center, but let's not get crazy. Roy is coming off a major injury and just had sugery for another, and has one year left on his deal. I consider the deal fair looking at just the Roy/Ott aspect of it. Buffalo happens to have an owner who doesn't mind the money aspect of the deal, so taking Pardy is less of an issue for us as it might be for other teams.

Face value Dallas "wins" the trade, but dig a bit deeper and I think it's fair for both teams.

Either way, most Sabres fans love the deal so that probably tells you something about how much value Roy has around here.
