08:22 AM ET 07.13 | The Sabres and Stars are clearly on different pages when it comes to Derek Roy and a nagging shoulder injury. The news that Roy had surgery Wednesday just nine days after being acquired by the Stars raised plenty of eyebrows around the NHL. The Stars announced Roy would likely be out until November. Dallas General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk later said they did not receive damaged goods from the Sabres because Roy had already undergone a physical, but it was simply a case of just putting him through a deeper medical evaluation and determining the surgery was necessary. "It was an elective [surgery], a choice," Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier said Thursday night. ... ""He could have played. He did play with it."

..."He could have played. He did play with it."

And - he was going to play through it. The Stars decided to have him get the surgery performed and get healthy.

sorry guys, even I have my limits.
This is a consumate disgrace, and it speaks to a buch of different things wrong with our society, so even I can't find a way to make it lighter or funny or whatever. I was so appalled by this, as we all were I'm sure.

Love that movie. Underrated Mel Brooks movie. Doesn't have many big guffaws in it, but tons of chuckles.

I agree and I'm not making light of the situation. It's pretty disgraceful what went on there.

I liked the fight scene when Robin wanted to cross the "river". Achew is jumping from bank to bank saying it's not the Mississippi. Bringing back Robert Ridgely as the hangman was great, too.

As a Penn State Alum, I'm fairly conflicted over the whole mess. There is so much blame to go around from Joe, on down to the janitors who all said they knew what was going on but they were afraid to lose their jobs. How could anyone let a sexual predator run loose to protect a job that paid just barely over minimum wage? I just hope that Sandusky gets what's coming to him in prison. He deserves it all.

Doesn't sound like you're too conflicted about it.....

Well we'll see if his favorite spot is still the showers over the next 25+ years of his life

Wondering if they'll survive the multiple lawsuits that will be filed

Since Modano and Avery left, it seems every Stars story is a non-story.
