Do you miss the days of Colton Orr and Rosehill?

I'd like to see Rosehill in the lineup. He's legit tough, can skate, cause havoc on the forecheck and change the momentum of the game with a big hit or fight. When you go into the tough arenas, guys like Rosehill give everybody else on the team just a bit more courage and fight to their game. We could have used him last night.

No reason why Lombardi and Crabb get regular minutes and Rosehill never even gets out of the press box. Pretty stupid actually.
That's good to hear, but can you even recall the last time Rosehill stodd someone up open-ice? He doesn't cause any 'havoc' on the fore-check because the vast majority of the time by the time he arrives the puck has long been moved. He's effectively useless in a quick game, which most teams play now.

Yah, he's tough. ..... (Crickets) that's about it. This illogical notion that he's somehow a productive NHL powerforward is tomfoolery.


In the last 10 years of his career in 513 games he has 77 pts. THAT is why Lombo and Crabb get more icetime.

You're telling me we couldn't use more of this when we play teams like Boston and Philly?

Looks like he's forechecking pretty well in this case. He twice prevents Boston from getting the puck out of their zone and then draws a penalty.

This is what a guy like Rosehill can do against these types of teams. What did Lombardi do last night?
