...he did it for Guerin.
I think that if Rollie and Weight are traded, they'll be sent to real contenders.
In fact, that'd be the most destination anyway, especially for Rollie.
Of course, Weight is gonna have to be playing like he was in the first 5 games in order for him to draw any interest, even from some contender looking for his specific skillset.
Weight to Detroit and Rollie to Washington (if one of Neuvirth/Varlamov is injured at the time) are not out of the question.
I'd also go so far as to say that Dipi's health and Rollie's tradeability is one of the main reasons the Isles continue to go with a 3-way goaltending span down on the farm.
In fact, a good string of very positive starts by Dipi may lead to an earlier departure of Rollie than expected.
Don't know how this all is effected by the salary cap limits. It's possible that the team would simply have to pay a penalty. It might even lead to a signing or two of guys like Satan and Svatos.
