Rolie's a good goalie. He had a GAA around 2.00 and a SV% of like .920 with only two wins because Minny can't score.
I think at this point, he's an upgrade over an inconsistent Esche...
BUT... Minny won't want a goalie back, they're looking to promote Harding. With our injuries, like someone said, I'm wary of trading a roster skater for a goalie. If it was like Savage, I'd have no problem with it, but Minny would never go for that.
I would probably throw an offer like Rob Bellamy and a late 2nd/early 3rd at Minnesota and see what they say. It at least gets the ball rolling with a decent proposal and opens a dialogue.

Then another problem is what to do with Esche? It doesn't make sense to keep him if we pick up another goalie, but not many teams will give fair value for him, considering his struggles this season. I could see maybe Colorado or Edmonton being interested in him closer to the deadline if we had to move him.
