Very nice guy and does a lot for the community. I'd say his value is about that of a late 2nd rounder which both fanbases seemed to like.
Just wish we could have done this trade before Roloson turned into Patrick Roy that last game against us.
very fair trade, We get a Solid mobile big defender who by all accounts has 1st pairing potential, plus Rolie gets to go play for something. I like the trade, not often you get a defender this big who is considered mobile and not have the qualifier "for his size" added.... Admiral fans I spoke to tell me We'll love this kid, That he really came into his own this year.
one fan I spoke to says he's great with the community and kids and that he's the Admirals most popular player and he told me he was sad to see him traded but that he's so glad he'll finally get a chance with the Isles......
