Rozsival was usually very solid but was prone to horrendous mental errors.

Both got more grief than they deserved. Personally I had very little patience with Rozy.

I want no part of Heatley. He skates in quick sand. He is the opposite of what this team needs.
Also, the Rangers played him mostly on the right side in an era when it wasn't yet cool to discuss what side a defenseman played on. He played almost exclusively LD with the Isles and Caps.
