Least favorite player of the last 10 years.... Lazy twerp.


And we'd miss the playoffs this year with him, again, then he would have left in FA.

I would rather watch Ott give consistent effort than the Derek Roy show. For another minute.

Screw that guy.
I'd like to have both an Ott and a Roy on my team.


The issue was needing to rely on Roy over the years as much as we did. After last year's deadline we got a small taste of how Roy could be more effective and the team better overall with a redefined role for Roy and better options offensively than Connolly/Goose as the other two centers. Roy's role was redefined into a two way top 6 defensive center with Leino/Pommer on the wings. He was no longer relied on as the primary creator of offense with the Hodgson and Ennis lines being able to provide a much needed boost offensively.

Now we've gone back to having a piece missing at center with Roy gone. That would be a two way top 6 center.
