Sabres Ruff will miss Roy


‘”I think he had a real tough stretch, he dealt with some injuries. I asked probably a little bit more in some situations. During our run at the end of the year, he was a big part of it (Roy has two goals and an assist in his last three games. Before that he was pointless in five and had one goal in 16 games. The run went 24 games and Roy had 15 points). I pushed hard to have us play with a little bit more of an edge and we’re going to miss his play making (In his career Roy averaged 24 goals and 40 assists for 64 points over 82 games), but in Derek’s case he probably thinks it’s a new look for him and knowing he was a big part of our team then.”’
