Guilty as charged. I didn't want Roszival back this past summer. I thought he was exposed in the playoff series against the Debbies last year, and that most of his success was related to having Malik as a partner (funny how things change), and he got a lot of ice time with Jagr. But, truth be told, I admitted I was wrong earlier this year, and was pleasantly surprised by his play, especially when he was no longer paired with Malik. And, he's upped his level of play in the playoffs. Funny thing is that I believe McGuire said on Sunday that the Rangers believe Roszival is becoming a #1 D-man and that his play rivals the better D-men in the league.
