Why the hell would anyone trade anything for his full cap hit when they could claim at half price for nothing?

If no team wanted him for free and half his contract, I'm sure there's going to be a long queue of GM's wanting to give assets away for his 5-milion deal. :rolleyes:

He refuses to report to Albany, sits at home, smokes a cigar and laughs every other week when his checks clear.

That or Lou find some way to have him refusing to report as a means to void the contract.

That'd be awesome, but I believe I read TG quoting Rolston (or his agent) saying he would play in Albany if asked.

yeah, he said that to be diplomatic so no one else would think he's a unmotivated dick. now that he knows no one wants him, why bother anymore?

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

In a perfect world, I would love it if Lou could somehow trade Rolston for two players (don't care who they are right this second) who combined make about the same $$$ as Rolston does. Of the two, hopefully one comes off the books at the end of this season. If that could happen, I'd be tickled. It'd be a miracle though.

Why bother? The buy has the rest of this year and all of next at 5M that's a whole lot of reasons to play even in Albany.

lol so much for Lou having a 'plan' when he exposed Rolston to waivers. Not to mention all these teams supposedly interested in him on re-entry.

Even crap for crap trades would be tricky because his contract can't be buried in the minors. Any other 35+'s with a $5 million cap hit that can match up in a deal? :rolleyes:
