Marco Rosa’s new teammates in Manitoba this season greeted him with the proper degree of smugness.
Rosa, who played in ECHL with Long Beach and Texas, was a member of the Houston squad that fell to the Moose in an AHL semifinal playoff series last season. Rosa, a center, subsequently signed with Manitoba as a free agent in the offseason. Some of the Moose reminded Rosa of that postseason result, playfully suggesting that it was too bad Rosa and the Aeros missed out on a bigger playoff paycheck by not going further.
