Roloson Not Delivering

from the National Post,
When the Edmonton Oilers tied their Stanley Cup playoff hopes to new No. 1 goalie Dwayne Roloson, they were expecting a stabilizer, not an anchor. It's painfully obvious Roloson is a mere shadow of his 2004 all-star self at this point. That may well reflect the rust accumulated and confidence lost as he spent time on the bench watching Manny Fernandez man the Wild net. Whatever the genesis of his troubles, the easy save is anything but as Roloson struggles to control even the most routine rebounds. Two of his 13 goals-against as an Oiler, the ugliest of them in fact, were scored into yawning twine while he flopped around the crease like a tuna on a slippery boat deck.
