Rozsival was fourth on the team...
in hits? I thought he and Poti were darn close in those stats. He was up there in blocked shots I do know.
I don't think Rozi's going anywhere. He signed for two years, and I think the intention is to keep him. It will be difficult for a youngster to make this team barring injury, although Richter may end up being the first one in since he'll be fighting for that seventh spot. The defense does look a bit better than last year (and no, not because Poti's gone, but because Rachunek+Ward>Poti+Strudwick). But Rachunek's the real wildcard in there.
Also in the article was that Rucinsky turned down a $3.1MM offer in June. If that's true, I wonder what the Rangers' plan would've been. Would they have still pursued Straka, Cullen, Shanny and Hall? And if so, I wonder what they really think of Prucha, as well as Dawes' chances to make this team. I can only assume that plan B was executed, and if Rucinsky was offered a contract, I'm glad that he didn't accept.
