Botta reports Philly and Chicago fishing for Roloson

This could be a very intriguing trade deadline for this team. If Snow can pull a late first for Sutton and a second for Roloson this team is in great shape heading into the draft. Optimally I think you'd like to see Philly get in on the bidding for Sutton. That will throw Washington and perhaps a few other eastern conference teams in the bidding. I don't think anyone wants to go a long series having to face both Sutton and Pronger for six to seven games.

Overall I'd say this team, if they trade Roloson and Sutton at the deadline, is solidly in the running for the services of Cam Fowler. I don't see anything standing in the way of them landing the third overall pick in the draft barring any lottery ball madness.

Overall I'd say this is a good thing. This team just plays .500 hockey with Bailey, Tavares and Okposo finishing strong, this team has a shot at at least some B level UFAs this summer. Perhaps even some high level UFAs looking to strike a one year deal to pad their numbers.

This draft should be this teams defensemen draft. You can never have enough of those. If you get stuck with too many you can always trade them in for some talented forwards or high draft picks later on. If anything Garth Snow should use this draft to corner the markey on young Defensemen. Next years draft is going to be weak so their really is not much immediate help coming up for at least the next two seasons.

There is one problem here that needs to be considered. One has to hope Dipietro's latest injury woe is just a minor setback. Otherwise this team is going to waste even more draft slots on goaltenders.
