Adam French: What To Do About Goaltending?

Last season the Coyotes went into the year with what looked on paper to be the worst tandem in the NHL. Mike Smith had had a constantly injured and inconsistent few years in Tampa Bay, leading ultimately to be sent to the minors before the playoffs after being supplanted by Dwayne Roloson. He showed some signs of excellent form in his limited appearances in the post-season, but overall...

Michael Stuart: The Goaltending Situation: Part II

Remember to Give Michael a Follow on Twitter! During last season’s debacle in Tampa Bay, goaltending was a big topic of discussion for fans of the Lightning. Dwayne Roloson was bad, Mathieu Garon was injured, and Dustin Tokarski was less than inspiring. Combined, they helped to form the worst goaltending trio in the league. Fast forward just a few months and the Bolts are...

Relive the Bruins’ 2011 Eastern Conference Final Game 6 Against the Lightning Thursday on NESN

The Bruins and Lightning were scratching and clawing for every inch in their 2011 Eastern Conference final matchup. With Tampa Bay forced into a win-or-go home situation after five games, things would only get more intense. Entering a bit of a desperation mode, the Lightning turned to goalie Dwayne Roloson, who to that point had never lost an elimination game. The Bruins countered...

Michael Stuart: Anders Lindback's Arrival in Tampa Signals Positive Change

Two seasons ago, the Tampa Bay Lightning acquired Dwayne Roloson from the New York Islanders. Upon landing in Tampa, Roloson made an immediate impact; he finished the season in Tampa with a 2.56 goals-against-average and a 0.912 save-percentage. However, it was in the post-season that Roloson made his biggest impact with the Lightning. As all fans of the Bolts know, he led the...

Michael Stuart: The Dustin Tokarski Conundrum

Anyone who watched a significant amount of Lightning hockey last season understands that goaltending was a huge issue over the course of the 2011-12 campaign. Dwayne Roloson began to show his age, Mathieu Garon was forced to take on too big of a role and Dustin Tokarski was thrown into a most unfair situation. With all that in mind, General Manager Steve Yzerman went out and...

Dwayne Roloson Is Worst By Goals Versus Threshold

On Friday I listed the 20 worst players in 2011/12 by goals versus threshold.  The worst player in the league by that metric was Dwayne Roloson of the Tampa Bay Lightning.  Last season Roloson was the oldest player in the NHL.  He posted a pretty weak 3.66 GAA and .886 saves percentage.  These numbers were both the worst in the league among goalies who played sufficient games...

Tampa Bay Lightning Need to Have Patience With Anders Lindback to Reap Benefits

The NHL landscape changes quickly. A year after reaching the Eastern Conference Finals, the Tampa Bay Lightning came back to earth in 2011-12. Their goaltending situation was a big reason for their step backward. Dwayne Roloson, whom the Lightning traded for in 2010, was not the same standout goalie that helped the team come within a game of the Stanley Cup Finals. Instead, he started...

Early exit leaves Penguins humbled

The Pittsburgh Penguins never stopped believing they could beat the Philadelphia Flyers. Not when the Flyers won the first three games of their Eastern Conference quarterfinals series. Not when the Flyers raced to a quick lead in Game 4. Not even in the waning moments of Game 6, when an unlikely comeback died in a surprisingly one-sided 5-1 loss. The Penguins began the playoffs...

Red Wings Predators Game 4 quick take: self-destruction made easy

At this point, it appears that the Detroit Red Wings may very well play the last game of the 2010-2011 season Friday night in Nashville. The Red Wings out-shot Nashville 41-17 and had every opportunity to score on this year’s version of Dwayne Roloson, circa 2006, in one Pekka Rinne… And instead of bearing down on their chances in the Predators’ zone, three catastrophic defensive...
