Player Review: Dwayne Roloson

By chrisleyden

Dwayne Roloson was the New York Islanders main goaltender for the first third of the season, before being traded to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Ty Wishart.

While with the Islanders the 41-year-old Roloson went 6-13-1, but that record is not at all indicative of his play with the Isles. During his time on the Island Roloson had a .916 save percentage and a goals against average of 2.64.

The real story with Roloson is what he has done after being traded to the Lightning.

Roloson has lead Tampa to the conference semifinals, where they have already stolen away the first two games against the Capitals, in Washington.

Most people believe that Roloson would be the Conn Smythe trophy winner if the playoffs were to end today, and I believe most Islanders fans would love to see Roloson raise the Stanley Cup.
