For those who want to track what a former "core" member is up to... for those who don't  - move along, nothing of interest here.

Game 1: Roy is the face off king. It seems he took 80% of the draws and went 17/23 over 22 shifts and ~22 min on ice.

And Kassian scored a goal and won a fight with Ben Eager.

Seems that all the guys with new starts did fairly well during opening weekend.

Is he playing on a line with Jagr?

Yup. And Eriksson.

I watched both Stars games.  Roy definitely benefited from the change of scenery, but then again, I knew he would.  The Stars needed a #1 center and they got one.  I've worked at places where, after a while, you just get burned out and it's time to do something new.  This was Roy's issue with the Sabres.  I always think he had the talent, but he was burned out.  A new start will be good for him.

I watched a couple minutes of the Dallas game last night... Admittedly I only saw one Roy shift but he didn't hustle back to the bench and lost the puck twice in the neutral zone.  It made me smile.

Surely you mean #2 center?  Benn is their #1 (and is a real #1) and as soon as he's back I'd expect him to get Jagr and Ericsson on his wings.

Note that there is no Gragnani tracker.  He's buried in Charlotte, after being released by Vacouver and waived/sent down by Carolina before the lockout.

I amvery glad he's gone for Ott and moving him was overdue.

By the same token, all the "addition by subtraction" talk of moving him looks like it was just another excuse for the guys still here.

Nothing we weren't already aware of, eh?

He has just one point in his team's first-round playoff series and has not shown a willingness to go to the tough areas

Roy, since joining the Canucks in early April and particularly in this series, has preferred to remain on the perimeter.

"Diminutive Derek". But he's a top 20 center!

Good old double D.

I could post this in the Connolly thread just as easily.  It's a shame that this board feels the need to bash former players because our team is so $hitty that we have nothing else to do.  These gusys didn't ask to be drafted here and had no control over their their fellow players or coaches. They signed the contracts offered them by management.  I would assume the coach had some input. Actually, those two guys have seen more success with this organization than most of the current players.  Will Eleven bash Ruff if team Canada doesn't win the IIHF World Championship? No, it will be the players fault.  They win, it was great coaching. According to the clowns on local sports radio, Roy was the cancer that pulled this team dowm  Hamilton loved to talk about the player who told us off the record, "watch this team go" when Roy was hurt a couple of years ago with that severe muscle tear. Gee Paully, would you like to tell us who that was after the debacle of this year? I'll guess he was part of this team.  Chz, your posts suggest intimate media knowledge.  Do you have any info?

Please don't speak for me.  I'll do neither; the IIHF stuff doesn't matter one bit.  I also won't go nuts if the USA wins.  It's not the Olympics.  It's a lesser tournament to the WJC, in my mind.

As for Roy, I never really had a problem with him (except for the diving), but I never really loved him, either.  He was what he was: a nearly point-per-game player with some (reported) maturity issues.  His production was not replaced over the summer, and I think I'm well on record that I was not happy that his production was not replaced.

As for Connolly, he was not drafted here, but he did have no say in his trade.  He showed little effort over the years.  I do not miss him.  Several friends who are bartenders do miss him.

Roy is just a lazy punk with a  big chip on his shoulder who never pushes himself or really tries. He is a naturally soft player who was coached soft by Lindy Ruff, and encouraged to remain soft by Ruff,  and his bad work ethic is so ingrained now I don't see him ever improving.   The other "plus" he brings are dumb penalties that hurt the team at really bad times, because he does what he wants and isn't a 'team' player.  

Sabres are better off without him - however, the problem is there's so much dead wood in the Sabres lineup that trimming him didn't have a visible effect -  sort of like having a woods full of dead trees - getting rid of one is an improvement, but the overall look doesn't change much.

Nope, could've told the Canucks that much.
