Lowe and the nhl knows he needs to make a move--but looks like he will wait till he gets a deal where he is not bent over the boards before he does it
After the deals he pulled last year, I suspect any deal he does this year will look like he got bent over the boards. You gotta think last year was a once in a career kinda opportunity to get so much for so little.
Good to see that Roloson, by his own admission, appears to have simplified his game.
"In the month of December, I wasn't mentally sharp with a lot of it and lately I have been getting back to the basics and working on the things I've needed too."
"I've had the time to work on them. That, with the rest, has made a difference," Roloson said.
With the defence in its current state, Roloson needs to be at the top of his game.
I would like to see his SV% get back up to around .915-.920...maybe Jussi can help out in that regard by giving him a few more nights off. He also will get a good rest in January (All Star break) and the remaining schedule after that doesn't look too bad.
i'm not exactly sure why i subscribe to the journal. joanne ireland has to be the worst beat writer of any canadian paper for sure and her article about roli batting the puck out of the air was pretty much the biggest waste of 5 minutes you'll ever see. the guy has a goal stick that's about 4 inches thick and hits an almost stationary puck out of the zone with the paddle of the stick. geez. i guess he's got great eye - hand coordination. thanks joanne. this just in. goalies in the nhl are relatively coordinated. how stupid. my grandma is 82 years old and she could probably drop the puck and hit it with a stick. whoop-de-freaking-do. thanks for nothing joanne. now get back to writing game reports with quotes taken from players and coaches that you got at the morning skate and not after the game.
