Glad to see Roy gone. Not the biggest Ott fan, but the team will be much harder to play against.
I wish Roy wouldn't have opened his god damned mouth about his injury not being fully healed to next year sometime. Probably cost Buffalo quite a bit in value. Roy will likely have a great year in Dallas.
I'd been hearing Roy for Ott for weeks. It's an interesting trade, though I expect there to be more. Roy needed new scenery, and Ott can play shut-down center or bring bang to the wing. Where they play him is going to depend a lot upon the moves that follow. (I expect moves to follow this summer.)
Are they going to bury Pardy? If so, Kevin O. at the D&C will be happy, hah.
By the way, I guess it's possible that they took Pardy on as a salary dump.
They could buy him out during the second buyout period if Kaleta takes us to arbitration.
It'd be a $666,667 cap hit for two seasons.
This is Pegulaville: just send him to Rochester and there is 0 cap implications!
