It's a shame about the CHL rule because he really looked disinterested in Owen Sound this past year and probably could have been a prime contributor with the Phantoms.
I think one year will be all Rosie needs in the AHL, if that. He can really handle the puck, dish it and, especially, shoot it.
I watched him play a few times this year and he's really got hockey sense. He may play better with better quality linemates, as good as his were. He also looked good at the WJC, dangerous very often.
Both he and Potulny will make watching the Phantoms fun next year.
