This leaves Rozsival.
Rozsival is bigger.
Rozsival puts up better numbers.
Rozsival would instantly be at least a top 4 dman on Dallas.
Rozsival - 76 games; 8 goals 22 assists; 30 points.
Robidas - 72 games; 3 goals; 23 assists; 26 points
Rozsival - 555 games; 54 goals; 149 assists; 203 points
Robidas - 561 games; 30 goals; 105 assists; 135 points
The biggest problem with Rozsival is his long term contract. The Stars have a ton of young guys who are going to be up for new contracts(and raises) the next few years, so adding a long contract doesnt make sense unless its a big time upgrade(which Rozsival is not). Not to mention dropping out of the top 10 in the draft to do so makes even less sense.
Much rather the Stars either move forward with what they have(and all the young guys now have another year under their belt), or find someone better to trade for.
Chaos is always right.
