Like the title says, I don't get to see many rangers games on a consistent basis like other teams, but how good is he?

What are is positives, negatives and potential?

I think he has reached his potential... He's pretty good in his own zone. I liked him a lot last year but I feel he is missing something in his game at times. He needs to rip his slapshot more although I feel he is always missing the net so maybe not. He would hold a lot of value if not for his contract. If he was making 3mill a year, the option of trading him would most likely be off the table.

Terrible in the beginning in the season, but as of now, he has shaped up his play, and is starting to play much better, and has shown signs of a $5 million defensman.

Positives:
-Great shot from the point, when he uses it.
-Can be physical, when composed.
-Can be good defensively when composed

Negatives:
-When not composed, rarely uses the body
-When not composed is horrible in the defensive zone
-Shy's away from being hit, when behind the net

Potential:
-40-45 point defensman, with a +/- of -7

He is a $2.5 million defense man signed to an inflated contract.

He has a good shot IF he elects to shoot. He can play stand up defense BUT doesn't do it on a regular basis. He can be well positioned but once again doesn't do so on a regular basis. He has difficulties keeping the puck in the zone on the PP and sometimes has trouble handling the puck. Without feeding too many assists off Jagr I see Roszival's potential down to approximately 10g 20a 30pts.

He could be good don't get me wrong. He has played absolutely great games, especially a few in the playoffs. But he has also played terrible games. He is a really hit or miss player IMO.

I actually like it when people call us the Rags ... We are one of few teams with a shortend nickname. Montreal is the Habs... Devils are the Debs.. and we the Rags ... Rags seems intimidating to me at least.

When the franchise has turned into a hard working blue collar team, the term "rags" doesn't actually ring that negatively according to me. The players have to get their noses dirty to win.

I posted a while ago about calling the team the "rags" and got creamed on this board. It has always bothered me, especially considering that Devil/Islander fans tend to use it in a derogatory sense. But anyways...

Rosy is a solid defenseman with extremely shaky confidence. When he is on top of his game, he can look amazing out there. He has solid skating, good defensive awareness, excellent passing (especially first pass out of the zone) and his shot from the point is above-average. Every once in a while he also discovers his physical game and can throw a pretty decent hit. Sounds great, right?

Well, its not quite that simple. I've rarely seen a player who is so easily thrown off his game and has to struggle so hard to regain it. Once his confidence gets shaken (which doesn't always seem to take much), he struggles with the puck and plays a very passive game.

If a coach could find a way to build and maintain his confidence, he would be a consistent top-pairing d-man. Right now he still gets off his game too often and has a hard time getting back to form, often going into slumps for stretches of games.

I think we should refuse to respond to anyone who calls them "Rags".
