What's going to change when he comes up to the NHL is the speed, physicality, and overall competitiveness. People are doubting his ability to play a decent enough 2-way game to stay up. People are doubting that his offensive production will continue when the speed of the game is so much higher. And people are doubting whether the speed/quickness/skill he's used in the AHL to succeed despite his size will be enough with the big talented players in the NHL.

They're all fair doubts.
Did you even click on the link? FYI, Roy is a goalie, but I am sure, as you pointed out, we will need to see better two way games from him and he does have decent offensive production. His speed and skill are great assets too.

Fair doubts indeed.

Or did you reply to a post on Roy, completely ignoring what it was about, and then proceed to continue beating the Rajala drum?
