Worth the 2nd and Connauton, sure. But he has not contributed anything thus far. Didn't even notice him playing tonight.

Unacceptable for a guy supposedly looking for 5M+ in the offseason.

He was electric the first few games he played for us, not very electric since.

I said he was going to fail, and wasn't pumped about the deal... But then again there wasn't much available, I don't think Dallas was going to move Jagr here

Another useless asset acquired by Gillis. I'm a Gillis supported but I'm gonna call a spade a spade.

I still like the trade at the time, we gave little up and fulfilled a need at center (with the uncertainty of Kesler)

This guy is an overpaid Mason Raymond though. Can't even win face offs. Soft as butter.

Walk away this summer and cash in please, good riddance.

Andy McDonald? Was a first line center on a cup winning team, and has been traded around and still contributes.

Incredible how quick opinions can change.

This guy was basically denounced as this team's saviour around these parts when he was acquired (not by me, but by most). "He's exactly what we need", etc.

If you want to go to war in the playoffs trade for a tiny little midget that likes to dangle and can't win faceoffs.

Great way to build a winner.

A lot of us were just happy we did something, brought in an actual center, look at us down the middle it's a joke.

And you were convinced the Canucks were too easy to play against. They have physically annhilated the Sharks thus far and taken a ton of penalties doing it. What they needed was skill and Roy possesses that. Unfortunately, he hasn't been good enough and the coach continues to play him with Mason Raymond, a guy he has absolutely no chemistry with.

Because on paper and based on past performance, he was/is a perfect fit for this team. An established first line center who could provide a fourth go-to scoring threat after the Sedins and Kesler, taking some pressire off of them, while simultaneously bumping Burrows/Higgins/Hansen into offensive roles more suitable for them.

So far he's barely been an upgrade on Schroeder. Actually, Schroeder actually managed to look pretty good with Raymond and Hansen, whereas Roy has been inept with both. Not that Raymond has been easy to work with by any means...
