I posted this article in my Monday Headlines, but felt a post on it was warranted.
Andrew Gross at the Bergen Record reports Ryan Callahan admitted the rough treatment Rozsival routinely receives from the home fans "gets under my skin"...
"Look how many minutes he logs per night and what he does for us," Callahan said. "It’s disappointing to hear the boos coming from the stands. I don’t think it’s right."
...the fact that any Ranger player was booed last night is a joke. The Rangers are playing their best hockey of the young season and no one deserves to be booed right now.
...regarding Rozsival, I am surprised that he is still getting razzed the way he is. Sure, he will sometimes look completely lost out there, but he has for the most part played solid defense since the middle of last season and now he is shooting with more frequency.
...to me this has to do with the lack of real Ranger fans attending games these days. The suits that are getting corporate tickets have no clue what is going on and are just booing because they remember booing Rozsival when they got their free ticket last season.
