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
Everyone knows Robidas isnt going to put up big numbers. Rozsival had 4 more points then Robidas last year, and i bet Rozsival had alot more powerplay time then Robidas.
Nothing against Rozsival but it doesnt seem worth it at all to trade Robidas for him and gain more salary
I'd much rather have Vishnevskiy get a shot next year and see what kind of numbers he can put up, and i'd be willing to bet if he played a full year he would put up more points then Robidas while making less then a million
