The Oilers would rather sign Roy to a contract extension rather than trade him, according to the Oilers web site.Roy has five goals and 12 points in 23 games for the Oilers since being acquired from the Predators in late December. At 31 years old one would think it would be more beneficial to the team if he were to bring back a younger prospect or draft pick but the organization believes that Roy may finally be getting the best out of Nail Yakupov. Still, this may be all for moot if Roy, who will be an unrestricted free agent after the season, has no interest in returning to a re-building team.
