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
So you admit the Rangers are the needy team and here and NEED another team to step up and help them out.
Also if you read the stats that you posted you also know these 2 guys are pretty close in terms of value.
Why in the world would Dallas do it?
I stand by my earlier post. If the Rangers NEED to make the move it won't come for free. Add your 1st to Roszival and I could see the Stars giving you Robidas and a late round pick in return.
Otherwise, good luck with not being able to add a forward you need.
