With less than 48 hours to go before free agency, Oilers GM Steve Tambellini is focusing his efforts on two of his own key free agents. The club has tendered what they believe to be a “very strong” 1 year offer to goaltender Dwayne Roloson. But, Tambellini isn’t sure if Roloson is going to take the offer. “It’s Dwayne’s choice,” he says. “He’s earned the right to free agency and if he thinks he can do better elsewhere, maybe (he’ll leave). We’ve got a day and a half to go.”
Tambellini says they also hope to come to terms soon with defenseman Denis Grebeshkov. “Denis is in our plans and we’ll get moving on that soon,” Tambellini says. He admitted that the delay in negotiation so far was due to the Oilers wanting to see what was available on the trade market.
