Hardly. He was never "elite", but he had some elite performances. However, he is pretty far removed from such accolades.
One or two solid games and the crowd will love him.
Considering just how dreadfull he was, it is going to take a lot more than that.

Not a very cheery thought if you ask me. I think that most of us are all in agreement of just how truly mediocre last year's group of defensemen was. By bringing back Ozolinsh (presumably at the expesense of a Rachunek), the Rangers are right back to virtually the same mediocre bunch, save for replacing Poti w/ Ward. Not a very cheery thought, given how many times they were bailed out by a goalie standing on his head.
