Rolston

Come on someone pick him up!!!!

Hehe, it'll be awkward after no one claims him and he comes back to the team.

I've been calling him ZombieRolston for more than a year now (for lack of hockey vision and desire to shoot from any angle--"Rolston shooooooooot!"), and he's already survived one cut. This would be his next un-dead reincarnation. God, please let the Islanders claim him. Not that it fixes any immediate problems, but it's a start.

Too many "leaders" on this team. If we can dump Rolston and then Langenbrunner, hopefully someone else steps out of the murky shadows and is forced to play better.

Langenbrunner for Bergfors would make some sense for both squads.

I still can't get over how Ilya Kovalchuk ruined Brian Rolston's career. I mean Brian was living up to every $ in his contract for a year and a half before Ilya was traded to this team. He's gone downhill ever since.

Now don't get me started on how Ilya has ruined Matt Corrente's development...

Just another Devil that we brought back that sucked hard in his 2nd tenure here. Hopefully someone takes him.

Little known fact: Kovalchuk and Lemaire were the extra shooters on the grassy knoll. Lemaire, of course, used mind bullets.

I still say get him to accept a coaching offer within the organization for several million dollars, while refusing to go to Albany - thus voiding his contract.

this is two very clear circumventions of the cba

He drowns puppies too!? Dude, I heard about the kitten-kicking, but puppy-drowning is just too much.

And what does that make you?

Going off a bit here, but when does terrible shooting luck turn into just being terrible shooting?

Oh my, how I missed that word! But it's okay, we're going to hear it a lot next summer when the league does everything it can to stop us from re-signing Parise we re-sign Parise.

Hehe, it'll be awkward after no one claims him and he comes back to the team.

Imagine the Rags had enough cap space to claim him. Not sure why, maybe it's an obssession about the Rangers constantly trying to steal our players, but I just keep thinking about that scenario. It would be pretty ridiculous if the Devils had to pay a Ranger for a season and a half. Even if he's pretty awful (then again, at 2.5M a year and for 1.5 seasons he might prove helpful to some team).

Weren't the Rangers still paying Bobby Holik when he was here a couple years ago?

That's possible, yeah. Thanks for the reminder.

If I had the $$$ to pay for the remainder of his contract I would BUY him, and place him on a pee-wee team. Then void his contract when he is unable to play :D I would then hope that the isle's would give him a contract so he can still play.

I would of course give him the $$$ regardless. :D

It all makes so much sense now. Kovy is too exhausted from quarterbacking all those Eagles games to hit the net. Shooting percentage aberration: Explained. (It also explains why one game Sunday night was postponed and the other wasn't ....

He may not be. Waiver announcements dont get made until the window is closed.

That's telekinesis, Kyle!

Clearly Rolston was the guy who fired the shot that nicked the curb under the triple underpass. Since him actually hitting anyone would be you know, a stretch.

WonderLou, what is the secret of your power?

WonderLou, won't you take me far away from the losing play now...

That made me laugh quietly to myself. :clap2:
