Oilers Need A Goalie

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

The Edmonton Oilers’ major priority may shift away from Dany Heatley and towards finding a No. 1 goalie now that Dwayne Roloson has left to sign a two-year contract with the New York Islanders. Edmonton didn’t want to go two years on a contract extension, fearing that if Roloson – as a player who’ll turn 40 in October – loses some of his edge, they would be stuck for both years of his contract., counting fully against their salary cap. It was a gamble the Oilers weren’t prepared to take.

Internally, they see Jeff Drouin-Deslauriers as a player who can play 20 to 25 games in the NHL next year, but they need someone else to play the majority of games.
