I think they would have to. Hopefully Snow would not mind Leighton as DPs back up next year, we add Bart and a pick. Waive Boucher.

Add Roloson with low cap hit without changing our team a whole lot, who knows maybe adding some scoring depth like 15-20 goal scorer on RW with some size would be nice too. Maybe Erik Cole type player if we are lucky or someone else I am sure some forward will be injured or not 100% so Flyers will need depth.

Not the most outrageous idea.

Obviously I think Rollie still got it and he can do the job, I like him and he should cost a lot less then some others upcoming UFA goalies.

Are you for real? How is anything my fault? lol
You asked what Rollie is worth, he responded that he isn't worth a roster player because he'd hardly play any games, and you jumped down his throat. Did Bobrovsky piss in your Corn Flakes today?

Send Backlund/Boosh+ to NYR for Biron. He's got play-off experience and would be a good head for Bob to be around.

I'd like to see what Biron could do with our defense in front of him.

Roloson is getting seriously underrated in this topic. He's a starter and he's put up some nice save percentages the last few years considering the teams he's played behind. He doesn't have any long-term value, sure, but don't trash his current play or call him "over-the-hill".

Anyways, yeah, only way I would be fine with trading for him is if Leighton went the other way and we didn't have to give up anything of value. We should have traded for him last year (might have won the Cup that way), but it makes no sense this year unless he comes to us practically for free.

If I could suggest, a "what if" context might make this thread more universally appealing. As in what if:
  • Leighton goes back on LTIR.
  • Boucher puts up mediocre numbers.

I'm leaving out Bobrovsky because, even if he bounces back from these past couple of games and shows he can go for the long haul, I would want a dependable back-up to shoulder some of the load in the stretch run. If Bobrovsky starts to fizzle, then this issue becomes even more acute.

Captain Paxil, thank goodness you arrived in this thread in the nick of time! As you can plainly see, we are in desperate need of your mood-altering superpowers. Can you turn these and into . Are you up to the task?

Even then we'd probably have to jump through some hoops to fit him under the cap. I don't have many names off the top of my head, but I would think Holmgren would target someone cheaper if that's the case. Maybe someone like Ty Conklin? He's apparently the backup that contenders like to trade for.

I've always loved Roloson and would want him if we could fit him under the cap. At the deadline his salary would be lower and easier to fit. If we do a deal that sends Walker and Leighton I'd be ecstatic. The islanders actually do need Defensive help so that could be done in theory. Roloson would be a lot better as a back up than Leighton or Boosh right now. He's also played well in the playoffs before.

Not true, given that we've been riding on LTIR all season.
