Oiler's Goalie on Waivers….

According to www.tsn.ca, the Edmonton Oilers have placed Goaltender Mike Morrison on waivers. This is apparently a sign that they are looking to pick up a legitimate number one goaltender……..In my opinion, I am shocked that G Mike Morrison is placed on waivers, considering his solid play. Can one shootout loss really mean the end of Mike Morrison in The City Of Champions??? Interesting.

    The Flyers put Turner Stevenson on waivers too.

    I’d hate to see Morrison go since he has shown a lot of potential but I’m guessing the teams looking to trade a goalie to Edmonton aren’t looking for a ‘tender in return. The next 26 hours should be interesting for the Oil and their goaltending situation.

    I dont get it, they could have used him as trade bait in aquiring a veteran goalie, City of Champions???? Ha

    Maybe this is because they just traded for Roloson?

    Manny Fernandez is now ‘officially’ the Minnesota Wild’s No. 1 netminder, as the team has traded goaltender Dwayne Roloson to the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a first round pick and a conditional draft pick.

    We Got Roloson!

    That’s a pretty good grab.

    His numbers look bad, but he’s been hung out to dry this season so far.

    I was hoping to see Eddie, though his pricetag was too large, but it would have been nice to show the world that it was his defence that led to this years doldrums so far.

    Cujo would have been nice, but merely a rental.

    I didn’t think the Wild would deal to the Oil.

    A bit irritated that Morrison was put on waivers, but perhaps he’ll go untouched, as teams aren’t looking for 3rd stringers at this point. I’d rather have seen Conklin go.

    Lets get behing Roli the Goalie.

    He’s our boy, that’s that!

    I’m excited!

    I’m glad that we got Dwayne Roloson, but a little concerned at the poor season he’s had so far. Hopefully he’ll be able to pickup his game and gain that number one goaltender title we so desperatly need to fill…………To be honest, I’m a little disappointed we didn’t get Cujo.

    I know, I know.

    But Joseph would have cost us more, and he’d definitely be gone at the end of the season.

    Roloson’s numbers are a bit better, but he hasn’t played as much.

    But behind our D, his numbers will improve.

    I think it’s a good acquisition, and a safe one at that.

    If things don’t work out, we go back to the drawing board.

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

    And we didn’t sell the farm in the meantime.

    Joseph chokes under pressure anyways.

    I was more hoping for Belfour, to prove the Leaf Fans that he hasn’t been playing bad this year, it’s his shitty D.

    Stood on his head last night and still ended up letting in 3 goals. His defense sucks.

    Ours, however, is awesome, and Roloson will be great!

    where have you found this about the flyers dropping stevenson? something i wish they would do but can’t find a legitamite source stating it.

  11. zane says:

    Mike Morrison has been the best goalie why just give him up

  12. Panks says:

    The best of 3 guys who consistently shit the bed.

    Glad we got Roloson, way better than the Belfour or Cujo rumours. Lowe did a good job, we didn’t lose much on either trade.

    Nice move getting Roloson.

    Shame we have now lost Morrison. Should have been Conks or Jussi.
