Re-signing Rozsival

Am i the only one who thinks the Hawks should make inking this guy for another 1 year deal is a higher priority than signing Bickell and/or Stalberg? We won a President's Trophy and a Jennings and a lot of that has to do with the ability of the Hawks to run 3 good/great dpairs every night. Rozsival gives that to us and i think its a lot more important than making sure we have a solid 3rd line, especially when that 3rd line could be filled with some prospects.

Dont get me wrong, i think Bickell and Stalberg have been great all year but if we re-sign neither but get Rozsie to another 1 year deal i would be completely happy.

I would want to see how he plays through the playoffs. If it was 1.5, I could be content with the injury risk. Hawks still don't have anybody else ready to come in from the system so they'll have to sign at least one more dman anyway. I can think of much worse ideas, depending on Roszival's price.

I don't think he should be a priority. In order, I hope they consider Leddy, Kruger, backup goalie, Bickell or Stalberg, and then consider Roszival depending on the cap situation.

Oh i hope you didn't mean I menat Rozie was our biggest signing priority. Obviously getting Leddy signed to the best deal possible is priority numero uno. I just wouldn't be upset if Stan decided to sign Rozsival in lieu of Bickell and/or Stalberg

No, I didn't mean to imply that you were suggesting that he was the priority. I was assuming you were only suggesting that you're open to the idea of keeping him around.

If he does he better be an extra D-man. I hope Stan has learned his lesson about resigning an older vet only to have him show his age the next year. (Jamal Mayers I'm looking at you)

Rozsival's only 34. He'll be 35 in September, but he's not so old where you should expect a significant drop-off next year.

I'd be good with extending Rozsival, but if the Hawks don't, it won't be the end of the world. Having Rozsival as your 6th Dman is a luxury, not a necessity. I know people would shutter to think it, but a rotation of Stanton/Brookbank next year won't be a bad thing. If they can afford Rozsival, great, if not, it's not going to make or break the Hawks. They'll still have three strong pairs regardless.

I am fine with Stanton and Brookbank as 6th dmen. I'd much rather spend the money to keep one of the two UFA forwards.

Besides, Roszival might be able to get a decent size contract as a free agent..he played great and the stats back that up.

Big Rozy fan. He may be on his last legs though. If he will come back on a Mayers contract then absolutely.

I wasn't expecting them to get as much out of him as they have. He'll be on a 45 game contract next year I think.

What would be a "Mayers contract" for Rozy, in your opinion? Surely not league-minimum.

Like I said, if they can afford him, hopefully they can resign him. If not, they'll roll with Stanton/Brookbank and still have 3 solid pairs.

For as solid as he's played, I have a hard time seeing someone not offering him at least what he's making now.

The key is to find the next Rozsival since he has probably played himself out of the Hawks price range for next year.

I agree. The only thing that may deter teams is that he still missed games a couple times, maybe another time that wasn't listed, because of injury. I think he'll get 2 million on the market somewhere. Too many teams with capspace that need defense. I'm hoping he wants to stay in Chicago for less, but I'm not expecting it.

I like him, but we would be better off using that money for a forward to keep our depth.

Team wasn't much worse with Brookbank in Rozys place.

First wait and see what happens with Leddy, Krüger, Stalberg and Bickell. Rozi will stay if we offer him a fair deal. Not sure if we could afford it

I think we're all fooling ourselves. Rozsival played great, and someone will easily give him a 2-3 year deal at a lot more than the Hawks can afford. He's still a legit 2nd pair guy that Bowman very smartly signed in the offseason when he slipped through the cracks. He's not going to slip through the cracks after playing so well for the Hawks this year.

He's just "alright". I wonder what this team would look like with a good #6 Dman then.

I'd love to resign him to a reasonable deal, but I think he will get paid more to play elsewhere, like others have said. If we could keep him for like 1.25 I'd be all for it.

Hawk fans are spoiled. Rosie is a solid 4-5 guy. As a number 6 he's probably the best in hockey.

Agreed, if Oduya is a 4-5, this guy definitely is too.

From a more board perspective....

I would like to resign Stalberg and Bickell, but I think Stalberg is going to get a good contract on the market that the Hawks can't compete with and Bickell will sign with us for a fair deal, but team friendly because he really wants to stay.

We must get Leddy signed and wouldn't oppose resigning Kruger either, but if we could get Stalberg, Bickell, and Leddy signed I won't complain.
