I'm not sure what the big deal is. he isn't playing that badly, and still is scoring even w/ the extremely slow start. he is what he is, which is a good offensive dman (always in the top 30 in scoring since being w/ us) who is avg at defense.

i'm just bringing this up, b/c well we have sangs in the minors who by what I can read/tell will be a good offensive dman, who will have his share of problems in his own end. Just sort of makes me nervous that he will also become a whipping boy, and fans will start ripping him apart early on.
Well, when Sanguinetti is being paid $5 mill a season, maybe he will be.

Now, I don't really believe in booing anybody on the Rangers, even players I don't like (the only one I ever have was Poti). I don't know about anyone else, but when I get pissed at Rozsival, it isn't him I'm getting pissed at, it's Sather for signing him to that contract. I know what Rozy is and what he isn't. If he was making $3 mill, it would be a lot easier to accept his flaws. And really, that is just anger directed toward Sather for giving him too much money in a salary cap league.
