...which would be ******** if it was. Rozsival's "role" with the man advantage cannot be reduced. He has produced more points than Dan Girardi, and Girardi has nothing of a slap shot. Only a good wrist shot. Rozsival is a far superior point man than Girardi. Redden, who has a better shot, and is more accurate than Rozsival, hasn't proven so in the last couple of years. The fact of the matter is Rozsival had double the goals Redden produced last year, and while Redden probably can produce more than Rozsival, and Redden is a better passer, that doesn't mean Rozsival's time should be reduced ONLY if he continues to be hesitant to shoot the puck. He shouldn't feel like he needs to resort to passing to Redden.
