Expect Derek Roy to move on from Blues following season

I don’t see Derek Roy having more than a one-year shelf life with the St. Louis Blues after they’ve started to scratch him. He’s scored one point in his last 16 games. They can use his $4-million salary to help defray the costs of signing goalie Ryan Miller to what’s likely going to be a $6-million salary next season. - NHL scouts watching Calgary Hitmen winger Jake Virtanen...

Blues prepare for visiting Stars with a few lineup changes

ST. LOUIS -- The Blues will get another look at their "Dallas Stars" third line of Brenden Morrow, Derek Roy and Steve Ott tonight against the visiting Dallas Stars. That line is back together again, like a boy band from the early 2000s on a reunion tour, after a somewhat truncated performance Thursday and coach Ken Hitchcock will be watching closely to see if they can...

Derek Roy gives Blues a much-needed playmaking center

ST. LOUIS -- Derek Roy is proud of his craft, setting up teammates. "I tell my linemates to get their sticks down ... and I might hit them," Roy says confidently. There's a unique cause-and-effect routine in the job of a playmaking center. He's sort of like a quarterback in football -- finding the open passing lane, spreading the ball to his receivers, keeping...

New Blue Derek Roy will spend training camp studying his teammates

ST. LOUIS -- Derek Roy is already busy. As soon as his skates hit the ice for a series of voluntary practices that recently wrapped up, the St. Louis Blues center was watching, learning. The process will continue as training camp starts this week. Roy is at his best when he complements everyone around him. To do that on a new team, he must get an idea of what everyone around him...

Blues are banking on a comeback by Derek Roy

ST. LOUIS -- Ken Hitchcock didn't expect much out of Derek Roy the first time he had him on his team. He was coaching a Canadian crop of top talent that would compete for the 2008 World Championships. Roy, an undersized forward, flew under the radar. "I didn't know him from Adam in the World Championships," the St. Louis Blues coach recalled recently. "He...

Dallas Stars Derek Roy’s ill-timed tweets

In case you haven’t noticed, there haven’t been any NHL games yet this season.  2012-2013 was supposed to have started about two weeks ago and the beginning isn’t anywhere in site.  Why?  Because the owners and players can’t agree that both parties make too much money and that fans and arena workers are the ones losing in this deal. Former Buffalo Sabre, now Dallas Star...
