Derek Roy scores 1st NHL Goal

Buffalo Sabres rookie Derek Roy scored his 1st NHL goal tonight on Patrick Lalime in the Sabres' 2-2 tie over Ottawa. Roy was also named the 1st star of the game, and was obviously the best player on the ice.

This kid is amazing, and will be a solid NHLer. He's gritty, and has got some offensive upside. Roy, who's 5'9", was giving 6'9" Zdeno Chara fits all game. Derek's played better each game he's appeared in.

For those that have seen him in action, any thoughts?

Roy was buzzing all game long. He looked real good.
Not sure that he was giving Chara fits, but he plays a chippy game.

Finally a reason to tune into Sabres games! :p

The kid is the complete package, well minus the size of course. An encouraging building block for the future.

I've been thoroughly impressed by this kid. Looks like a young Straka.

Actually, I thought Lalime was the best player on the ice. And giving Chara fits all game?

He was probably the second most effective player on the ice tonight.

Well the fact that Chara lost the puck in his skates 3 or 4 times in the corners tonight and in previous games against the Sabres.I thought the best player was either Noronen or Vermette.

As a Pens fan you should understand how the fans of a struggling team love to believe there's a savior somewhere in the orginization...especially in the middle of an 8 game winless streak...
