Roloson on the move? Tampa Bay Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman, who keeps preaching patience, is willing to keep his two average goalies Mike Smith and Dan Ellis — at least for now. But don’t be surprised if he looks at New York Islanders goalie Dwayne Roloson at the trade deadline. Roli’s $2.5-million US contract runs out July 1, so he would be a cheap pickup. Florida Panthers netminder Tomas Vokoun would be a better choice, but he’s twice as expensive and the Panthers and Lightning play in the same division. Yzerman could always sign Vokoun in the summer. The Lightning have been through 14 goalies since Nikolai Khabibulin departed after their Stanley Cup victory in 2004. They got Smith as the centrepiece in the Brad Richards trade to the Dallas Stars.
