Explanation: it's Sportsnet. Sportsnet sucks. Sportsnet has always sucked. Sportsnet always will suck. Another possible explanation is that while The Most Reputable NHL Source In The World says it's a done deal, Sportsnet is waiting for an official announcement (and edmontonoilers.com would certainly be in that boat).

Haha, no. Eklund had a rumour of Roloson going to TBay for sure.

Then AFTER TSN had already reported the trade he posted it as a "rumour" on his site. (remember he messes with the timestamps to look like he's posted it before the trade went down)

13th in the NHL with a .910 save percentage. With the amount of shots the Oilers give up this is an excellent pickup

Can't be anything but good news. A first round pick is steep if they dont' get him for next year too, but at least we have a fighting chance now.

Outstanding trade! Just terrific.

Props to Riseborough for trading within his conference. It breaks with convention, but makes perfect sense if the Oilers were offering the most, and clearly they were. Probably drops his odds of making the playoffs from around 4:1 to 5:1. Big whoop.

I've got confidence in the guy, so I dont' mind the trade at all. I still think something else is coming

Worth the wait? I wouldn't go that far, but I'm a Roloson fan. He was probably my second realistic choice behind Noronen and ahead of Biron, CuJo, and Belfour. I'm not at all worried about recent struggles, that's not his history and there's a pretty big sample size supporting the idea that he can play this game. He's not an All-Star, but he's pretty good.

Was a first a high price? Yes, but in this draft an acceptable one. As has been mentioned, we have plenty of prospects in the barn, this draft sucks, and a draft pick is always a crap shoot while Rolly-Polly-Olly is a pretty sure thing.

First off: Allow me to eat crow for my 100% Cujo.

Secondly: Piss Poor Trade. There is no difference between Cujo and Roloson, except Cujo is a proven playoff goalie and would have cost WAY LESS to aquire.
This is a brutal deal. I can't stand how people think that once a move is made it's so great for the team. If someone had posted in the rumours that Roloson was here for a 1st and a 3rd, people would have been up in arms.
The other factor in this deal, is now we cn waive mye bye to Mike Morrison, who was put on waivers and will defiantely be claimed methinks. So we got ol' man Roloson, UFA, games below five hundred, GAA above 3, for a 1st Rounder and Mike Morrison, and potentially a 3rd.
The only thing that salvages this for me, is if we get a dynamo offensive talent OR Roloson in here as our backup.

Damn.

And it boggles me that people are going spastic over trading zero roster players and one spin of a roulette wheel (two if we resign him) for a guy with a .910 save percentage when we've literally lost a dozen points because our goalies haven't been able to come close to stopping nine out of ten shots.

Cujo in playoffs? Been to the Semifinals once.

Roloson in the playoffs? Been to the semifinals once.

Is there that big a difference in playoff accomplishments? I think not.

I think that's all fair comment, LB.

Personally I was worried that they would go for a guy who was already struggling, or pay a price in terms of roster players for Biron, who I don't like much.

I'm really happy with this trade. The Oilers don't NEED a Luongo back there (Though it would be great!) ... they just need a solid goalie who doesn't let many pucks go through him. That's Roloson.

I think that they are going to do well now. I don't think there is any pressing need to do anything with the skaters, now that Cross and Ulanov are off the ice. Moreau, Pisani and Reasoner will all get healthier and better. A bit more offensive depth would help for the playoffs in expectation of the inevitable injuries. I like the Dallas Drake rumours, one of the young guys from CHI (Bell, Calder, even Arnason) seems like too much to hope for without sacrificing the roster.

I think they are pretty much set. As good as anyone in the West now.

but a first isn't worth what it used to be, and a playoff run NOW can do so much for this team (expand the budget, make them an attractive UFA destination) that I think it would be tough to argue vehemently against this gamble.

Plus if they go hot now, and win the division, the pick is 24th at the earliest. I don't think that's particularly likely, but it's a nice thought and I want to think it for the next couple days rock

I can't believe the negative response to this trade! I'm thrilled with what Lowe pulled, and since Vic and Riv seem to agree, I'm happy. Any time I agree with them I feel like I'm on the right side.

This trade shows how hard it will be to get a goalie for the playoffs. Since the draft is weak, there are going to be few GMs wanting a 4th round or later pick. They know that there is nothing past maybe the first 12 players this year. I'm amazed that it took a 1st rounder plus to get Roloson. I'm not saying he isn't worth it, but I think it may be a little over payment. I guess we'll find out in the summer. I'm guessing that the conditional is on if he signs or not. But that won't be til after the season at least.

Well we at least have a solid goalie in net without even touching the roster. Now Lowe still has the assets to go out and get a good scorer for the playoffs. There is still something that makes me think that Lowe may not be done in the goaltending area, maybe picking up Noronen.

I guess we'll see. Good trade for now. If the pick turns out to be anything then its a lost trade, but can't fault Lowe for the deal. He needed to make it, but he alos put himself in this position.

One one hand, I never wanted a player named Dwayne on my hockey team.

On the other hand, he's got an above league average save %.

Back on the first hand, he's got a below .500 win %.

On the other hand, he's put up good numbers for the last five years and even played 11 playoff games in 02/03.

Colour me enthused but cautious.

If the oilers are averaging 25 shots against a game Rolosons 910 sv% translates into a GAA somewhere around 2.25.

If he can maintain that (as opposed to the 3.10 the Oilers have been getting) it's well worth the cost of a 1st round pick in a bad draft class.

This is a solid move, and likely to pan out one hell of a lot better than Cujo would of. Outside of Biron, Denis, Giguere, or the miraculous happening and Luongo coming here, this is what I'd have hoped for.

And if Senjutsu can be positive about this, anybody can. Seriously.

I'll admit I was secretly hoping for Denis the whole time. Roloson never really crossed my mind as an option, I just didn't see Minnesota trading with us. My bets had Rolo going to Ottawa.

A 36 year old who's never been drafted nor traded until now.

I bet there aren't too many NHLers who can claim to have played for 5 NHL teams, never been drafted, never been traded.

KLowe gets the dubious distinction of being the first GM to trade something for him.

I agree with the post a few back. The real loss will be losing a goaltender with potential, whether it be Conklin or Morrison for nothing.

Conklin has no potential. Losing him for nothing would be only a blessing.

I agree...I didn't even consider the possibility of not just an inter-conference, but inter-division trade. That's why I wasn't sold on the possibility of grabbing Cujo. I'd have loved it -- I'd be able to wear my crested jersey again -- but you don't see many of those trades.

I'm optimisticly cautious on this deal. Roloson has good stats, but hasn't played much this season. At the least, we're in a better position now than we were this morning.

*edit*: It was inter-division, not intra-division. Duh.

Kudos to Lowe and Riseborough for trading within the division.

1st rounders are the gold bars of the internet. Mind you I had no clue who was in the draft and apparently it is worse then the draft year that we got Ninimaki and might be as bad as the year Phillips was the first overall.

Stats likely won't do it for me, but could someone please remind me of what a 910 save percentage looks like?

I'm just going to say it, this Longcat fellow is quite possibly the best poster on Oilfans.

Some people see those things as the second coming of Wayne, I swear. And I think a lot of people here have forgotten that we have 2 picks in the second round.
