What are you talking about? Most around here wanted him gone a few years ago, before he signed that extension. He then became paid like a top 6 player while lacking in top 6 talent. Even his best asset was a double-edged sword because it meant he saw more time than he should have due to his faceoff ability.

I'd like to see more from Roy before committing to him for a long time but I lean the opposite direction of HullFan and company. I generally like what I've seen from him and find his skill-set perfectly suited to 2nd line center on a decent/good team. The only real concern from where I sit is his ability to stay in the lineup; you just have to be able to count on a top 2 center being in the lineup on a regular basis. I'm really not too worried about his presence "blocking" Faksa in a few years. Young centers play the wing in their early careers all the time. I'd go so far to say that it happens more times than not.
