Has a legitimate source said anything about a possible trade?

Is Okposo better than JT?

i agree, when i watched Okposo play last year he reminded me of a young Hossa. a demon tracking down the puck, solid PKer and relentless.

the scoring tough will hopefully come in time and hopefully he can still play the same way with the repaired shoulder.

he is so fun to watch.

maybe they let lawson play tonight to see how he does, so they could feel confident moving Rolo after the trade freeze. i don't see a move happening with Dipi having the swelling unless they know Lawson can at least stop 4 from going in a night. i'd had to see Poulin or Koskinen thrust into starting this season. i want them to build confidence first.

roloson is healthy, they just want to start lawson because they dont want to call up someone and put them on the bench. thats BS. there is a reason why rolli is on the bench, im guessing they dont want to risk him getting injured either.

Hey,do u think that Roloson is on his way out because Nabokov is on his way back to the NHL? No matter what, the Isles really have first shot at him because he has to clear waivers and they have first shot at him.If not what about Jersey trying to pick him up cause i think Brodeur is done after this year.

When the Islanders sign Dubielewicz a couple of years ago, he had to go through waivers. At the time, the Islanders had the worst record in the league. The Blue Jackets claimed him, because the Islanders aren't allowed to put a claim on someone they waived.

Either way, I can't see Nabokov wanting to sign with the Islanders. I can see him signing with Tampa, but not the Islanders.

Thats not what i am saying.I am saying that whomever signs him.the Islanders have first shot at him on waivers, so they will be picking him up no matter. What i think if not, Jersey might pick him up and let somebody go to make room.

Roli is a top 10 goalie in the league, he just played for mediocre lottery teams with an AHL defense. When he had a capable team, we got to see how he did in the playoffs......

A 3rd for Roloson is a steal.

You don't call up a 3rd string AHL goaltender to start an NHL game with a NHL veteran sitting on the bench.

Either Roloson's injuried as well but Islanders don't have another goalie to dress, or they are purposely tanking.

Look at the Devils doing so bad as well, Charles Wang might feel they need more cushion to ensure they have a top 3 draft pick.

Wouldn't surprise me.

Oh, sorry I misread it. Yeah, I highly doubt that happens. Wang would be more than happy to ride a cheap tandem with Lawson and DP for the rest of the season when Garth trades Roloson.

True BUT,they are so far down the standings now that i dont think that Nabokov will really help and if they get a good pick at the draft and still have Nabokov they MIGHT do pretty damn good NEXT year and bring some fans into the building.

Most of the press and most of the fans who watch the team describe KO as the team's best forward.Even with Tavares on the team.

Last April,Gordon told HNIC that he could see KO getting the C in another 2 yrs.

Really strong work ethic,good lockerroom leader,developing young scorer,physical player.

No thanks.The impending ufa Kovalev, likely wouldn't be an isle beyond July 1st.

So the isles give up Rolison and a high 2nd for Lee.Pass.

I remember Roloson flipping the puck to centre ice to send Peca on a breakaway in the Oilers' 2006 failed glory run.

Those were the days.

They needed to start an emergency call-up? I doubt that.

Benching Roloson to start Lawson is either Snow/Capuano being stupid, Roloson is banged up but not saying anything, or Roloson is going to be traded.
