Derek Roy snippet, forecaster

(towards the bottom)


Derek Roy, C, Rochester Americans (AHL):
Drafted by Buffalo 32nd overall in 2001
So far in 2003-04: 10 GP, 6-7-13, +6, 6 PIM

The Buffalo Sabres have plenty of depth at the center position but there may be enough room to squeeze Roy into the lineup later this season. The comparisons with former NHL great Doug Gilmour are obvious whenever watching the 5-8, 187-pound Roy play. Both players were former OHL scoring stars and both play the game with dogged determination. Gilmour had to learn how to play two-way hockey when he entered the NHL, while Roy is already polished in all areas. With Tim Connolly's future clouded by concussion problems and Chris Drury now playing right wing in Buffalo, Roy could be recalled to center the team's third or fourth line in the not-too-distant future. Eventually, Roy could become the team captain of the Sabres a la Michael Peca.

that's all

This is the kind of guy the Sabres need on their roster. He seems like a blend of Adam Mair and Danny Briere. A sniper who plays with heart, passion, and toughness. I know he'll be my favorite player on the team the first time I see him take the ice in Buffalo.

Drury playing RW? I think they mean Briere.
