I read that the NHL has denied this trade. Wonder what is up with that.

They're going to have a pretty darn good team for the next few years.


Roloson is very overrated. He and Fernandez have had high save %s over the years because of the Wild's umbrella system that gives up a high number of shots, but keeps them to the outside. He will not be nearly as effective with Edmonton's up and down style. The Oil's style contributed to their goalies' low save %s as much as the Wild's style contributed to their goalies' high save %s.

Roloson isn't nearly as terrible.


No way Roloson is as productive in the Oilers system. No way the Oilers goalies are as pourous in the Wild's system.

The average goalies productivity is probably more dependent on his teammates and teams defensive style than any other position.
