Roy is not likely to be here next year, supposedly he wants a big raise.Reefer2 wrote:Great pickup - now it is in MG hand to keep him.
no idea on how to make it work but assume that Ballard is gone and then the question is Roy better than Booth?
Positions can work themselves out later as a 2nd line with Roy/Kesler/??? looks pretty good and we will have a decent centre once Kesler gets hurt again .
The only possible way to sign Roy would be if Luongo, Booth & Ballard are gone, and either Raymond or Higgins don't return here.
Roy is really a 2nd line center, so we can't afford to have a 3rd line center earning north of 5 mil next year.
There will probably be quite a few guys available this year at fire-sale prices as the Cap goes down, so I could see MG looking for a solid 3rd line UFA center to sign in the $2.5 - $4 range
