Lightning claims Andre Roy on waivers
Saturday, December 02, 2006

By Dave Molinari, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


Tampa Bay claimed Penguins left winger Andre Roy on waivers today.

Because Roy, who had been assigned to the Penguins' minor-league team in Wilkes-Barre earlier this week, was on "re-entry waivers," the Penguins will be responsible for paying a pro-rated portion of his $1 million salary for the balance of this season, and half of his $1 million salary in 2007-08.

Roy, signed as a free agent from the Lightning in 2005, had no points and 12 penalty minutes in five appearances with the Penguins this season.

He played in 104 games with the Lightning between 2002 and 2004, putting up 12 goals, nine assists and 260 penalty minutes during that span. He played in 21 games during the 2004 playoffs, when Tampa Bay won the Stanley Cup.

"It was never our intention or our desire to lose Andre Roy in the first place," Lightning general manager Jay Feaster said in a prepared statement. "However, when the new (collective bargaining agreement) was put in place, we knew that in a salary cap world we could not afford to match what some teams were going to be prepared to pay Andre and thus we lost him to unrestricted free agency.

"Having lost him, we never regained that tough, physical, gritty element that Andre brings. Now, for the first time, the new CBA has helped us in that through re-entry waivers we have been able to bring back a very important player to our hockey team at a salary and cap hit that make sense."

"we knew that in a salary cap world we could not afford to match what some teams were going to be prepared to pay Andre and thus we lost him to unrestricted free agency."

That's because only Craig Patrick would be crazy enough to pay $1/M a year for Andre Roy.

"Having lost him, we never regained that tough, physical, gritty element that Andre brings."

Really? In two seasons I never saw it to begin with.

Basically all Shero is doing now is cleaning up Patrick's mess. While it stinks we have still have to pay Roy $50,000, it's better than paying him $1/M to do absolutely nothing.

That's the truth. The guy doesn't mess around.

While I'm definately excited about this season, I'm very anxious to see what Shero does with FA after this season is over.

He may clean the house of those who plan to screw up the great comeback we have started so far.

As of right now, there are not many. For a young team they are hanging tough up to this point. At the same time, I would like to see Ouellet actually score 5 on 5 for once. Ruutu show us he does in fact have a pulse. Ekman get's a HT one week and then you don't hear about him for eight games.

In a division this close.....

NYR - 30 points.

NYI - 29 points.

PITT - 26 points.

PHI - 20 points.

that loss last night stung a little. We looked flat for the most part. Recchi blew an open net and had problems cradling passes all night. Bring on the Panthers.
