To each their own. I'd be happy if he helps get us to another Stanley Cup. We'll see how he does with Washington.

You are unbelieveable...

To say you hate Roloson is to say you'll only be happy with a top-5 goalie. And even then I question if you'll really be happy.
This!
Very true...

and who are the top 5-6 goalies in the league?

Maybe Thomas, Miller, Luongo, Backstrom, Rinne, Bryzgalov?

How many Cups have they won?

ZERO.

You want someone who gives you a chance to win...Even in Games 3 and 4, when he gave up a few softies, Roli kept the team afloat and gave them time to win the game but they couldn't...

Honestly though, who in heck are the top 5 goalies anymore, and is it really that important? Who's the last team that won with stellar goaltending? There are no standouts right now, they all have flaws as far as I'm concerned. Thomas had a great regular season, but in the games I watched he wasn't great, the list goes on.

Roli is above average for what we need him to do, which is be a bridge til one of our youngsters can move on up. No hate from me for him, great pickup.

He even got his own ad. http://tbl.li/jdkgwA

Yeah I see someone pretty much beat me to it, but I'm posting anyway.

Truth. I hope this is the start of another Edmonton like run, just as long as MAB doesn't hurt him again haha. I like the trade for him because obviously we wouldn't have been a number 5 seed with Smellis, though there's no doubt we would have made the playoffs anyway. I hope he helps us to the Cup so you can all tell me I told you so haha. And if he wins one, I'll put his poster up on my wall.

The video is pretty sweet and it's about time we got one.

I was actually expecting to see one if we won the cup:

Luongo had a couple of games against the Blackhawks that were on par with the worst of Smellis.
