"I think any player, when they play against their old team, it means a little more to you," Rozsival said. "You have memories. When you get traded, you want to do well. You're playing against players you used to play against. It is interesting."
Rozsival will be playing in just his fifth game of the season tonight, after missing 26 games with a concussion he sustained in the season opener.
...will be great to see Rozsival tonight...sucking for another team.
...out with a concussion? What else is new in the NHL.

Dave Tippett on Rozsival...
"Hue's a real solid veteran defenseman," Tippett said. "He thinks the game well. He fits into our group. He had a history with some of the Czech players so he felt comfortable right away. He plays solid minutes. Unfortunately, this year, he got hurt in the first game."
It's amazing how much better the defense got once he was traded. He had one good year and that was it.
Rozsival was very classy after the trade. No bad words, no bitterness, maybe some regret that he was leaving. But he said how much he loved playing here and being a Ranger. I don't think he ever deserved the boos.
He was one of those players I always felt bad for, hes wasnt good but he tried and it was sad sometimes seeing how sad he would get after making a bad play.
@IcyCup that explains what he was doing out there! He thought he was on the other team,now it all makes sense.
