I think we may have forgotten that both the staff and Roy believe he needs to stay in college to develop his body so he can withstand the rigors of the NHL game. Roy's scoring now, but I want to see that type of scoring consistency for more than one year. And should the Ducks not be in a rush for a scorer, then the Ducks have the luxury to wait for Roy not to continue to develop his offensive game, but possibly other aspects of this game that may make him even more serviceable.
