So, as you know by now, the Rangers sent Michal Rozsival to Phoenix for Wojtek Wolski. Wolski is a pretty big kid with a lot of talent that’s been playing on an anemic Phoenix team (no players with more than 12 goals) but he’s been known to float and not get involved a lot in the offensive play. Basically, he’s Nikolai Zherdev. To me, that’s the kind of player we could use, assuming he is producing. It is up to Torts to make sure we get all we can out of him, but the talent is undeniable.

Wolski is a bit of a reclamation project, and Rozsival is a guy who can eat up big minutes while being rock solid in all 3 zones, so in reality the Coyotes probably win this trade right this minute. However Wolski has outstanding upside, and this could end up being a steal. It could also end up being a loss, but we do clear up a little bit of space next year (about 1.2 mil) and have opened up a spot for one of our kids while also taking on a guy with legit 2nd line upside.

I’ll take that risk every time.
