Not the most dedicated player, has a history of being a party-boy and a locker room problem. Not any kind of real leader, won't fit in a role that expects him to carry a lot of weight. Prone to turnovers and trying to do too much.

He'll be good with Vancouver since they have established leadership and better top-end talent. Behind Sedin (and Kesler when he's back), Roy will thrive.
Completely agree with this, though I'm still not sure about the 'locker room cancer' thing. He really will thrive in Vancouver.
