Huge Faksa fan, but counting your chickens before they hatch comes to mind.

With the illness and now the knee injury, by the time it comes to signing Roy in a few months, they'll have no idea what type of NHL player they have in Faksa.

I think you've got to go with the a similar move as Kari Lehtonen. Technically that deal could block Campbell, but he's not a sure bet elite starter. Lehts already proved he is.

When it comes time for Campbell or in this example Faksa or any other center prospect to push out Lehtonen/Roy ... you deal with it then. The end result is probably a nice package of assets which isn't a bad thing either.
