He was without any doubt the NR 1 D for NYR during his time in NY. If you look at the PO's this spring, in all series PHX played, Rozi was one of the better D's on the ice (of course not the best, but up there with them atleast).
He is definitely below avg a as a PPQB, and hence will never put up great numbers. But 5 on 5, he is just a darn competent D. In today's NHL, there are plenty of D's who do well as long as they are not put in a bad spot. If that happens, alot of D's are badly exposed when you can't
clutch and grab
anymore. Rozi is in a pretty exclusive group of D's who really can take care of himself on the ice and get by in all situations. He makes a good first pass and is excellent and being constructive while under heavy pressure.
A great signing by Chi for sure.
