oz was a really trustworthy offensive defenseman. i dont remmeber himbeing very inspired defensively.
he kinda took the league by storm. he had a season early in his career where everything he threw at the net went in. the league put him on lockdown after that season it seemed, and he couldn't (or didn't see the need) to fight through it i guess.
all in all...very skilled player, decent body language on the ice, cup winner, solid playoff performer. you could win a lot of games with this guy on your team.
Ozolinsh and Tverdovsky are underrated defensemen. The difference between them is that Ozo played for a good team with a coach that knew how to utilize offense while Tverdovsky had to play the "dump the puck and fall back"-style.
