Since it's an appreciation thread, I'll appreciate the removal of his cap hit when he was traded.

Congrats to Rosy. Though I will say that it was every bit as painful watching him with the puck in a Hawks jersey as it was when he was wearing a Rangers jersey. The guy is painfully indecisive.

Ha, agreed. But so are most 3rd pairing defensemen - even on championship teams. Wasn't his fault he was the #1 guy for a large portion of his tenure here.

Certainly not. The guy performed admirably in a role that was well above his natural abilities.

Rosy has always been a pansy.

Being a pansy has nothing to do with it. He just passed up way too many opportunities to shoot the puck, and waited until players were on top of him before trying to make a pass.

Yes, and a pansy is typically a coward. Rosy would freeze up when he got the puck. He also is incapable of skating at full speed. He just automatically quits moving his feet or gives the puck up once he starts to gain speed.

He was a good defenseman, just a pansy.

Last season Phoenix had a ton of momentum in their elimination game, the crowd was going nuts. Then Roszival got hurt and Phoenix lost just seconds later. As it happened it felt like Rangers fans went through that saga multiple times. He has a knack for being the buzzkill.

I never understood the complaints about Rozy being soft. He was a minutes eater, blocked a ton of shots (I think he led the team in that category for a few seasons until he was traded), and although he was never a hitting machine, he was capable of throwing a good hipcheck every now and then. Indecisive and slow, yes, but not soft.

I also kind of forgot how big he is. He's 6'2" but his frame is massive.

So now indecisive players are pansy cowards? Collective IQ of HF is at an all time low.

He got hurt on a hit after the whistle, what a puss.

What a load of garbage.

He's a pansy for being involved on a knee-on-knee?

We're not even remotely on the same page. He was indecisive with the puck, but he was far from a coward.

So hockey players that struggle to make decisions with the puck on their stick are pansy cowards? LOL. Terrific insight.

What a load of garbage.

Just as much of a load as garbage as you and everyone else taking everything I said and blowing it way out of proportion.

Not a coward like he would back down from a fight. I said exactly what Trxjw said. He doesn't like having the puck on his stick. His mind turns to mush and he doesn't know what to do with it. The same thing happens when he skates the puck up the ice. He looks like he's never done it before, and stops moving his feet and looking for a pass, even when it's not the right play. He played timid. Oh, and before you try and accuse, it has nothing to do with the other definition of pansy. People on this website have a knack for taking what people say and making a mountain out of a mole hill. See some of the Brad Richards threads.

The knee on knee has nothing to do with being a coward. I just said it because when it happened, it reminded me of Roszival's tenure with the Rangers, it was very typical. Not directed at you, but people need to learn to read.

What a load of garbage.

Fair enough, then we'll agree to disagree.

I appreciated what Roszival did, he was forced to play a much larger role then he was capable of. But he drove me mad more then most defensemen we've had over the years.

Big congratulations to this guy. It's a shame that he was treated negatively by the fans during the end of his tenure here. I felt that the guy was forced into a role that he was not talented enough to fill. Great to see that he found the right role on a team and was able to finally win the cup. He looked amazing throughout the playoffs, especially in the finals.

Oh, so it's my fault you called him a pansy and a coward? Sorry for reacting to your ridiculous descriptions of the guy. Coward is a pretty strong word. Maybe choose your words more wisely next time?

I feel as though "hesitant" or "tentative" describe it better.

Here's to Rozy, who becomes I believe the only ex-Ranger since the lockout to win the cup, with the exception of Pascal Dupuis.

Always thought Rozy was a gamer. He always showed up in the playoffs with the Rangers, as he did with Chicago...

Congrats

i think the deal with rosy " freezing" with the puck, is he would rather hang onto it then turn it over.. hes just looking for a good play, runs out of time, and loses it.. what the difference if you hang onto and lose it in your corner, or toss it up the boards right to their dman.. almost better off with it in your corner..
