Rozy is a sound positional defender. While he is not a hitter, he is willing to use his body to get in the way, unlike Gilroy or Redden.
Rozsival is fantastic at working over forwards along the boards, and winning puck battles. This has to be his strongest asset.
When played with an offensive line, Rozsival's great passing is still very apparent when he plays.
Rozsival is great on the penalty kill and blocks lots of shots.
Rozsival is our second best defenseman at logging big time minutes against opponents top lines.
This thread is for those who appreciate Rozsival, not for those who dislike his european heritage or the fact that he doesnt throw giants hits to take himself out of position.
Why some ranger fans seem to not be able to comprehend the benefits of a solid, balanced, positional defender who is good at most everything but not standout in any area is beyond me. More names for my ever growing list of dumbasses.
