When Jagr goes I would expect the Rangers to become a more grind it out North-South team. I don't see any of our current d-men putting up big numbers. One who may eventually would be Sanguinetti. Roszival's offensive game is predicated on being a support player much more than anything else--we've spent 2 1/2 seasons watching him pass up glorious scoring chances to give the puck to Jaromir--better positioned for a good shot or not. Without the huge threat that Jagr is--and whether he's scoring or not--I expect the whole offense will suffer when he leaves. If you don't have a big gun--you better learn how to play defense.
