At 41, former Wild netminder Dwayne Roloson keeps his body -- and his eyes -- sharp for the playoff-bound Lightning.

Rolo sounds like a good dude. Good luck and enjoy the post season playoffs!

Ive always wondered what the current Wild goal tending situation would be had we kept Roloson instead of Fernandez. Would Roloson have stayed healthy unlike Fernandez? Would he have played as good as he's played with other teams? Would we even have Backstrom if Roloson was our starter?

Look for Backstrom to play a big game, Just sayin

Best of luck to Roli and the Bolts I was sad the day we traded him . I think we would serve our cause better by losing today .

Why didn't the wild seek out Steve Yzerman as the GM? What a fantastic job he's done with the Lightning. Its amazing a team from the south holds 4 or more high end players! St. louis, Lecavalier, Stamkos, Gagne, Hedman and some others. The wild can't seem to land even one! Maybe the state of hockey should be Tampa bay! The wild will have their hands full this afternoon with this bunch. Roli must be a happy man, great team, great weather, you deserve it Roli,hope you get yourself a cup!

Roli deserves a cup! You must be a happy man Roli! Great team, great weather, a GM that really wants to win! This team is an example of what the state of hockey should be!

You know, Roli is probably a decent human being...and is obviously a very good goaltender. But, I'll never quite forgive him for being one of the union leaders of the NHL Players' Association that lead to the complete loss of then entire 2004-2005 season. And the thing is? The players didn't gain squat in their hard-line position (they ended up getting pretty much just what the owners had offered before the season was ruined). So, the players got nothing and the fans lost a complete season of hockey. Nice going, Roli...

Good for him! nice to hear about hard work paying off. One 3rd the price of Backs good deal for Tampa.

Roloson is a class guy and a phenomenal athlete to still be doing what he's doing at age 41. He was great when he was here and you can't help but pull for a guy like him. Good luck but go Wild this afternoon!

Roli is a class guy. Why would he care that one of the many inept, loser major Minn. sports teams traded him. Anywhere else (well, maybe with the exception of Cleveland) is a step up - as the Wild, Wolves, Vikes, Gophs...continue their 70 year championship draught. Oh, and GO TWINS!
