Are you guys a bit worried that Roy and ott put up similar points last season and Roy is soft?
I am, both he and Eakin are smaller, and I think Ott was a good part of the "hard to play against" philosophy. Unless the team brings Doan in, I am a little worried about Benn being the only really physical player in the top 6, and we still need a 3rd line winger IMO.
Roy should bounce back with whoever he is lined up with though.
Man Facebook is hilarious. Absolutley stoked about this deal, and somebody finally took Pardy off our hands. Now if we can extend Roy, and sign Doan we'll be all set, oh and trade Morrow and Robidas please.
This oddly reminds me of the goligoski trade, except we didn't get crappy value. Ott is what he is, a good 3rd line left wing. Pardy is a salary dump. Roy is the most talented player in this deal who might do well here now that he isn't being constantly dogged by Lindy Ruff. We can all ***** and moan about getting younger until the cows come home, but it looks like Joe wanted us to be in playoff contention. I think we're a better team than last year already now.
my thoughts too. dallas addresses a need & dumps a dman salary (addition by subtraction).
