That is why Rozsival does not fit in. If we go on the presumption that 1) Rozsival gets resigned 2) a UFA defenseman will be brought in 3) Staal will not be returned to his junior team, all of those essentialy end any hope of Pock, Lampman or Rachunek playing on the team. Not just next year, but pretty much ever. Resigning Rozsival (which, IMO, will happen) is still being burned by the "one vet too many" theory. Having him play next year, will end any hope that Pock, Rachunek or Lampman may have.
