Because defense is a place the Rangers actually do have depth.

The need to generate some form of cap space brings the need to trade a player with a large contract. Drury is immovable as is Redden. Lundqvist will not be traded, and Gomez can be traded, but the Rangers would probably have to overpay to do so and it leaves a gap at the teams number 1 center hole.

This leaves Rozsival.

Rozsival is bigger.
Rozsival puts up better numbers.
Rozsival would instantly be at least a top 4 dman on Dallas.

Last Season:

Rozsival - 76 games; 8 goals 22 assists; 30 points.
Robidas - 72 games; 3 goals; 23 assists; 26 points

Career:

Rozsival - 555 games; 54 goals; 149 assists; 203 points
Robidas - 561 games; 30 goals; 105 assists; 135 points
