[Signing] Blackhawks agree to terms with defenseman Rozsival

Noticed that without Campbell by his side, Jar's value has tanked in Chicago's eyes. Let's hope that doesn't happen to us with Garrison.

Leddy isn't that good defensively. And offensively is a very-poor-man's Campbell. At least Jar can check a bit, but not great with the puck.

Oduya is a recovery project at this point, but has some potential.

Rozsival solidifies the group a bit, when healthy. I suspect that Montador is out for awhile longer.

Great signing by them, something we really should of done. Rozsival is a quality depth defenceman, that is, he will probably play on their bottom pairing but he is fully capable of playing 20+ minutes very well if and when a top-4 defenceman is injured.

We have Ballard, and he's barely capable of 20 minutes.

If Stan can put together a package for a top 6 forward then either Hjalmarsson or Leddy will be gone. Otherwise we'll just have one of the deepest defenses in the league. Which is ok too, because pressure needs to be taken off Keith and Seabrook.

Just look at the Cup Finals in 2011. We had so many injuries on the blueline that Ballard ended up in our top-4 and he was disgusting.

I admit he's not getting a fair chance from AV, but the bottom line is he's not great defensively when given big minutes, whenever he has had these opportunities in the past. Someone like Jurcina, Coliacovo etc. would have been perfect for our bottom pairing to play with Ballard though.
