Personally I'd rather not sign either Roszival or Avery for more than two years. The idea of ponying up to Roszival 5 mil per or more in the post Jagr near future is ludicrous. He is a good player but he ain't no all star and he ain't a legit No. 1 d-man. I'd look for his offensive numbers to go down after Jagr leaves and while good defensively he's far from a shutdown player. Avery concerns me in the respect that I see the possibility of him blowing up on us one day. He needs to be kept on a shorter leash than some. There's no denying that the Rangers play with a lot more guts and gumption when he's in the lineup and that is an intangible quality that few players in the league can provide and if in the future of this team he's a 2nd liner then I don't know if 3 or 3.5 is too high a cost. In any case to me he comes before Roszival if only because there's only a handful of players like him around.
