"No market for Roy"

Paul Hamilton says that there is no market for Roy, not one taker?


Believe it? Is Darcy overvaluing him or does no one want him?

I find this strange with the shortage of centers in the NHL...

Hamiliton needs to GTFO. He knows nothing.

correction:
there is a market for roy. however, the market regier expects to sell him in, and the market the buyers are shopping in... are on different sides of town.

Paul Gaustad: $3.25m cap hit

Derek Roy: $4m cap hit with an expiring contract.



Yeah, there's no market for Roy.

There is a difference between.."no market for Roy" and "no market for what Darcy wants for Roy"

I don't think Paul knows the difference

Paul's understanding of markets stops at Wegmans. There may be no market for the price at which Regier has attached to him. If I list my home for $500k, and I don't get any offers, that just means there's no market at that price. Regier is probably asking for more than anyone is currently willing to pay, but that doesn't mean there aren't teams who'd be happy to have him.

I don't believe it, because it's nonsense. As I said in another thread, if the Sabres offered him up for a 2nd nearly every team would have some interest.

If teams are interested, then there's a market. If Darcy is asking for too much, there's still a market, it's just below what Darcy is seeking. So I think Hamilton's a bit out there on this one, even if you throw semantics out of the window.

He was passing off speculation as facts re: a lot of players early in the season (or at the very least, wording things in a way that blurred the line). What's the original context?

Also, Darcy is smart to do exactly what we are inferring. See if anyone bites at the high price before lowering it, and let some teams strike out today before doing so.

And sometimes to everyone's surprise, someone will pay $500K (1st round pick) for a Motorola Razor (Gaustad) and a car charger (4th round pick).

I believe Paul Hamilton is wrong.

I thought at the trade deadline Darcy Regier said that there were offers for Roy but they weren't as good of offers as they were for Gaustad.

You're correct, he did say that.

Let the dominos fall in the next couple of days, and then Roy will be moved. 'Can I fill my offensive hole through FA first?' 'nope, hello Darcy, what do you want for Roy again?!?!'

so what, we dont get maximum value. It might be addition by subtraction. Look at the run after we lose Roy to injury. We need a legit top notch defensive center and if Roy helps to acquire that, we must do it

Addition by subtraction. Just like Tim Connolly, right?

Funny that Hamilton says this after the Gaustad signing.

No, just like the season he went out after 35 games and the Sabres went on a tear and made the playoffs, remember?

Still confusing correlation and causation, I see.

Just keep him and exploit his contract ending year. He'll put up big numbers, and we'll all think he's turned the corner. Then when he gets his contract he'll be good but not great again.

He's no cancer as many of the nimrods on this board and around Buffalo in general, would suggest. He's merely the whipping boy. He fills the role that connolly vacated.

Once Roy is gone, the focus will shift to Leino. Sabres fans need a target at all times to loathe. It's unfortunate really.
