if Stevie Y wasn't the GM, Roloson wouldn't have gotten the shutout

It wasn't actually Roloson in net, it was Yzerman.

if Stevie Y wasn't the GM, Stamkos would only have score 14 goals so far. And Ovechkin would have 31.

Not sure why people are so in love with Yzerman as a GM, yes the Lightning are doing great, but a lot of that is just internal development of young players they already had. Look at his actual moves:
- Traded for Gagne, who has basically been useless and very overpaid
- Signed Kubina, decent move
- Signed Brett Clark, meh
- Signed Dan Ellis, who sucks
- Signed Randy Jones, meh
- Signed Dominic Moore, I like him
- Extended St. Louis, basically a no brainer, though he did get him at a solid price. Definitely his best move
- Drafted Brett Connolly 6th overall, a high risk move, especially since the next 2 picks were Jeff Skinner and Burmistrov, and Cam Fowler was on the board too. This could turn out well but it could definitely turn out poorly too given Connolly's inconsistent effort game to game and his injury history

I don't really get the hype, he may end up being a good GM but he has a lot to prove.
Again with the 'Gagne has been useless' crap. He has been a fine 2-way player for us since his comeback from injury. Also, no-one could have foreseen Ellis ******** the bed quite as much as he has done.

His best move is hiring Guy Boucher, AND ITS NOT EVEN CLOSE.

Very happy for Roloson, glad he's finding success in Tampa and I hope Wishart does well in Bridgeport and eventually on the Island.

Another good move by Tampa.
Solid, solid future for that team if ownership is willing to spend to the cap. With a deadline pick-up of a strong D-man, they have a fighting chance against pretty much anyone.

This is not a reaction just to tonight. I've been saying that about him for a long time.

Check my previous posts from weeks and months ago. I see Roloson play quite a bit and he's a very good goaltender. Look at his stats under the Islanders.

It would not be out of the question that if he had a full season with the Lightning, he could be in the Vezina discussion.

He steals games as well as any other goaltender in the league. He put the Islanders on his back and dragged them to respectability last season and was trying to do that this season. Put a good team in front of him and it would be an obtainable goal for him.

The only thing is his durability at his age but he is a warrior in the net and never gives up on the play as most Lightning fans saw first hand tonight.

If Roloson had played for TB his whole career, he would be headed to the Hall of Fame.
