As a Habs fan I would love to pick up Rolston...but considering where this info is coming from, my guess is the habs have no contacted his agent at all...

Maybe the places he'd like to play are not interested in his services. Those are separate reports and yet you post it as if it somehow contradicts Eklund.

He's talking to teams? Yeah you think? Now "Rolston has decided not to talk to anyone (E3)" would be a shocker.

The best part is, the quote is "5 teams have already contacted his agent". What Eklund fails to point out is that between the time he made up this rumor, and the time he posted it, 11 more teams have already contacted Rolston's agent.

Eklund isnt anymore accurate then us blogging on this site. The only thing that is reliable are players 'spoken words' and there agents other then that it's all a poop shoot.

Not to mention Eklund is totally bias. I read all kinds of blogs and hockey news sites and Eklund has a hard on for Canadian teams. He's like Don Cherry, a hockey traditionalist.

I bet hes a Leafs or Canadians fan.

Perfect. Now all the Wings and Rags need to do is hold and conference with Rolston and Sundin and flip a coin to see who gets who.

"Brian Rolston promises to keep me informed today. He’s hoping for Detroit but hasn’t ruled out Tampa Bay, who offered him a sick deal. By the way, the Wild was miffed by a report in another publication that said the Wild’s best offer to Rolston was around $3.5 million.

Assistant GM Tom Lynn said that was “way low,” and Rolston also indicated to me that the Wild offered him a very quality contract. He just felt this was a “once in a lifetime” opportunity."

not really. he's just smart. he knows we have more hockey fans who will carry rumors around everywhere and that means more clicks for his stupid website.

Bof! Even that isn't that reliable. Just ask the Oilers.

Rolston update from Russo:

"Wild has made another offer to Rolston. He also has offers, I believe, from New Jersey, Pittsburgh, the Rangers and Detroit. He turned down a three-year, $13.5 million deal from Tampa Bay, by the way.

I know Rolston’s camp has talked with the Wild. If the Red Wings are legit, it’ll be tough for Rolston to leave that on the table."
