The bolded part is quite true. While overall production may be similar, Redden and Morris have looked much more comfortable than Rozy, which to me would suggest that they probably would have eventually started to outproduce him.

If nothing else, one major detriment to the PP breakout will be gone. Rozy almost never made a smart play to come out of the zone, and almost always wound up turning around to regroup. The only thing the PP LOSES with him gone is his shot, and he never used that anyway, sadly.
