Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal,
The NHL’s free-agent doors swing wide open in 28 days, but goalie Dwayne Roloson still hasn’t received a contract offer from the Edmonton Oilers.
Roloson’s age obviously is a factor—he turns 40 in October—so the Oilers may not be willing to pitch anything more than a one-year deal.
“We haven’t started talking at all,” Roloson said in a telephone interview on Tuesday. “But they’ve had other issues to get resolved ... lots to do with hiring coaches and firing coaches.”
Oilers general manager GM Steve Tambellini, who attended meetings in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, said the two sides would begin serious negotiations on a new contract very soon. But how many years the Oilers want to offer and how much money is available is anybody’s guess.
