Rolston can still play! I hope the isles take him, and let him play. I think he will provide a veteran presence and make them better... We certainly can not get any worse by losing him.

Why would the Isles buy him out though? They need his cap hit to hit the floor, especially after trading Wiz.

"Brian Rolston probably won't end up playing any games in AHL Albany, according to his agent, Steve Bartlett.
Devils GM Lou Lamoriello plans to assign Rolston to Albany if he clears waivers, but Rolston would then be placed on re-entry waivers. Any team that claims Rolston on re-entry waivers would split his cap hit with the Devils. Bartlett doesn't think Rolston will even have to actually go to Albany, though he will report to the squad if he's required to do so. Bartlett has also been given permission to try and find a team interested in acquiring Rolston, but it's unlikely that anything will come of that."

because an old fart buyout is at 100% cap. I don't know if they get to take the $2.5M hit or they get the entire $5M hit. but I doubt the later. so, they pay him less but take the full cap value. they would only claim him for floor shenangians. I don't think anyone has any use for him as a *player*.

a good source (from what i read...) is saying that the islanders are ready to pick up rolston

not only that... but that they are working a deal that would bring Semin to long island...

here's the source

i mean i really dont see why wash would want to trade semin their best players right now before the playoffs... and the islanders to get a rental player while they will not even make the playoffs?

that's not that great of a source if he thinks Rolston is any factor in a fantasy move for Semin. Rolston can't be traded if he's claimed, no?

well he did not said that they would trade rolston for semin? he just said they would pickup both

i cant see that trade happen... other than if wash is getting NY's first round pick... but they are not even sure they could resign semin so its a big risk... but its the islanders... they could pull that off lol

i mean... a few hours ago you see them trade their best dman.... you think ok well they decided to tank this year... then they would bring a top player which would be super pissed to go from a top team to a sh!tty team...

Well that depends on the package, they are very close to the cap floor and if they were to move Moulson, Roloson and another upcoming UFA for Semin, then they will need to reach the Cap Floor. I expect them to claim Rolston and waive him buying some cap hit.

We'll take Moulson.

The Semin thing could be true. Washington is going to have to go all in this year if they want to get past Pissburgh and they have plenty of holes. They still need to shore up their D and I don't think they're going to be too excited playing two relatively green goalies into the playoffs.

But just imagine this scenario next season:
"Taormina outlet pass to Semin. Semin carries over into the offensive end and goes around the net, blind pass to Kovalchuk. Score! Hattrick Ilya Kovalchuk. The score is now Devils 35 Penguins 1. Sidney Crosby moustache hairs are falling out all over the place."

No, he could not be placed on re-entry waivers until today. Teams now have a 24 hour window to claim him. We will know tomorrow if anyone has jumped.

"Jay Pandolfo's last game at Boston University was against the Wolverines," Madden said. "My job was to cover his line. Jay had scored something like 30 goals in 30 games that season. And that was his 31st game. Guess what happened?"

"We always joke about it now," Madden said. "Jay tells me: 'You shut me down that game and you've been shutting me down ever since. The only problem is, now you're playing with me. ' "

No, as in he was just placed on the re-entry waivers a bit ago. Meaning he can now be claimed.

Now Rolston is saying he wants to be claimed and go somewhere else.. It's like, when we had him I didn't want him.. But now that we might not have him, I'm sad to see him go.. This is a very messed up relationship :( :P

Rollie has treated the fans well. One of the nice guys on the team. He is a great character guy, but not a good player. So long to you and your Bentley sir.....

Thats how I feel with anyone that was on our team. They may be the worst player in the league.....but thats our worst player damn it!

"According to several sources there is also a chance Lamoriello will trade Rolston if he is willing to take a player (and salary) off the hands of another club. Rolston would not speak of that possibility but said he would waive his no-trade clause."

"How disappointed am I? It's disappointing for sure," Rolston said. "This has kind of been an ongoing thing here for me. It hasn't been great run for me and obviously with the team struggling the way it is this year, it's been a difficult situation to go through.
"I've had a good career. For it to come down to this is tough. I know I have a lot of hockey left in me. I know I can help teams. I just have to be given that opportunity. My salary his high and that could be a sticking point." -nj.com

All I can find is that "several" teams are interested in Rolston. Id like to see exactly what teams are interested in him from a notable source.

Good Luck with the rest of your career Rolston!

"Because Rolston is now on re-entry waivers, he cannot be traded by Devils unless/until he clears re-entry waivers at noon Thursday."

Like anyone wants to trade for him if hes gonna be on re-entry.

I feel very little for Rolston, who was a bust here. The signing wounded this team. I resent it.

"On June 29, 2008, Rolston's negotiating rights were traded from the Minnesota Wild to the Tampa Bay Lightning in return for a conditional draft pick in 2009 or 2010.
After failing to agree to a contract with the Lightning on June 30, Rolston became a free agent the next day on July 1, 2008, and signed a four-year deal worth $20 million to return to the New Jersey Devils."

Ugh! He was so coveted....and then....
