Roy isn't a marginally productive forward. He's scoring at a 60 point pace this season with an unsustainably low shoot percentage. He's a true talent 60-70 point player.
Nonis gave up a similar return for a 4th/5th defenceman (Carney), a 2nd/3rd line centre (Smolinski), and a goalie that played 4 games for the team (Noronen)
