Stop Booing Rozsival

from Brett Cyrgaus of The Blue Seats at the NY Post,

This is a plea to all Rangers fans. It’s a plea to realize how much impact you have on the game and how much impact a gang-up mentality within a fan base can affect the players.

Specifically, this is a plea to stop mercilessly booing Michal Rozsival.

The defenseman, who in the off-season signed a lucrative 4-year $20 million contract, has been playing sub-par so far this season and has been hearing it from the fans. Let’s not turn him into this year’s Marek Malik.

from the Blueshirts Blog,

Of all of the negotiating impasses between Glen Sather and 2007-08 Rangers who were approaching free agency, the one that made the least sense was the one with Michal Rozsival.

Finally, about six months longer than it should have taken, the Rangers and Rozsival are on the verge of signing a new contract.

Michal Rozsival hit by Ilya Kovalchuk who received a major for boarding and game misconduct.

Rozsival went off the ice on his own with a cut near above the eyebrow I believe.

Block Those Shots

from the New York Times,

“You have to break the fear,” Rangers defenseman Michal Rozsival said. “You try it once, it hits your shin pads and you say, O.K. We all played the game for so long. Nobody really thinks about it anymore. It’s like natural. I don’t think there’s any guy in the locker room who would be thinking, Oh, should I block it or not?”

The N.H.L. did not start keeping statistics for blocked shots until 1998. Since then, blocking shots has become an increasingly important — if still hard to fathom — part of the game. Coaches preach of them as a way to cut down scoring chances, to keep life easier for the goalies, and to turn defense into something practiced by the whole team, not just the defensemen.
