If you are better than decent you are going to be overpaid..
Roszival is entering the prime years of his career and has proven that he can play for the Rangers (many more overpaid guys have proven they can't)
The guy is solid but no spectacular.
No refuting from me here on whether or not Roszival can play on the Rangers.... other than the fact that Roszival is not a 1st pairing defenseman. He belong on the bottom pair. I think he's an above average defender on the bottom pairs. Same goes for Malik and Kaspar and Tyutin. They're all pretty mediocre.
As a unit better than average, alone pretty pitiful.
