He'd be a nice fit with Edmonton. Especially with doubt on Reasoner being able to return.

Yeah, the Oilers are a fast skating team. He'd love the ice there too.

According to reports Blues have targeted one of either Conroy or Rolston as their UFA signings this year so Blues are interested. He'd be a nice addition to the top 6 in St.Loo.

Perfect fit for him.

I've basically ruled out his return to Boston at this point, but I'd love to see him back. If we do lose him, I'd like to see him go to the West, preferaly a Canadian team, which is why Edmonton would be great. Some Bruins fans don't give this guy enough credit. He's fast, good defensively, and he has a great head on him. Furthermore, he's been to the dance and won it before, so he has experience on his side as well.

Rolston will make 3 million at the most, why can't Edmonton afford that? Plus if they can't re-sign Nedved it isn't because they didn't offer him some decent money it will beause Ned's wants to be in a major city like LA or New York for his model wife.

Lowe has offered a 3 year deal between 8-9 million (3 million per), I'm sure it's an opening offer and he will have to pay him at least 4 million per. This all according to Slam Sports.

Oilers #1 priority is getting Nedved to sign. Only if that fails will they look at other options like Rolston or Nylander or even perhaps Conroy.

They most likely are looking at Nedved plus another centre as there's some doubt on Reasoner's status.

Yeah, it said that the Pens were one of the "half dozen or so teams that expressed interest in him." Both the writer of the article, and all of the sane Pens fans know that it won't happen, but it would be a great fit in Pittsburgh.

If some way some how the money is there, Rolston would be a fantastic pickup for Pittsburgh. We need a player like him.

Almost every team in the league could find a use for Rolston. I don't think he will be available too long, I think someone will sign him next week or the week after. I don't think there will be as much of a wait and see approach with Rolston from GMs. Whoever has the ability to get him will do it.

I guess they didnt watch any Bruin games last season. Surely they did not see his pathetic display in the post season.

Hey, if you live in Montreal and are aware of the media around here, you seem to have forgetten that hes the one who said: "We have bigger things to do than just beat the Montreal Canadiens" just before the serie started.

Habs dont need this kinda of players

Not going to happen.

Lacroix, based on his track record, is very leary about bringing back players who haven't had success in the Avalanche system/frame of mind. He struggled the entire time he was here, and then was shipped off to Boston where he was able to showcase his talents a bit better.
