He'll have good games and bad, and right now, he's very quiet and I barely notice him out there.

Mind you, I'm still a bit miffed we traded an elite #2 C on a good contract for a 3rd line agitator, but... Whatever...
My expectation were what he showed us in the Philly game. He hasn't brought that style of play since. It seems both players haven't lived up to expectations.

And that elite 2nd line center is having an injury riddled season. He's becoming injury prone. Even when he's in he hasn't looked too dangerous. I don't think the addition of Roy would have any positive impact on our team or record.
