Roy, is himself an all situations player. I see them as pretty comparable. Roy plus asset is speed, while Stastny is bigger.
Good point about the shoulder issues. Hadn't thought of that. Could explain Roy's face-offs this past playoffs. Saying that though, the Sharks are strong face-off team, so perhaps it's a bit of both.
