Roy certainly didn't earn himself that multi-year $5 mil deal he was looking for IMO. that said he'll likely get it from someone. i actually wouldn't be adverse to the canucks re-signing him if they have a coaching staff that wants to play that offense first game.
AV misused him I think. Tossed him around the lineup with multiple wingers. Put him on the wing. At center etc. Never had a chance to get comfortable.
The deal was an excellent one? Don't know how you can call the Roy rental an excellent deal, but hey that is just me.
So again, we are blaming the coaching staff on his poor play?
Why would it be smart signing Roy. You have a very similar player in Schroeder, who just needs a little more experience but is real close, same size but a helluva lot cheaper and Schroeder is definitely has the better wheels.
Let someone else waste $5 million on him. I don't get how Roy himself thinks he's worth that? 1 goal in 32 playoff games? 5 goals in the regular season this year?
I know I wouldn't give him that kind of contract.
and yeah Schroeder deserves a shot but don't we want size and attitude for a third centre?
