For comparisons to the rest of the league I took the highest scoring center on each team for a total pool of 30 rather than the top 30 highest scoring centers in the league. So how does Derek Roy stack up?
So in 5 categories he is in the top half and in 4 he is in the bottom half. Looks to me like he is an average first line center in the league. Of course there are people that will argue that he “dives”, but he has cut way back on that. He is a well rounded center than can play in any situation. Half the teams in the league he would be a #1 center on. Every team can’t have Malkin, Crosby, Staal down the middle.
