Some Saturday Morning Roli Squee-age

Coming off of his second straight shutout, this time against Dallas (ew), Roli has been selected to be one of NHL.com's Three Stars! That's my boy. Now he just has to keep the puck out of the net for 22 minutes and 15 seconds more against Chicago, and he'll break his personal shutout streak record.

Here's an interesting YouTube clip -- Roli wore a mic at the November 28th game against Anaheim and, like any good goalie, he does a lot of hollering at his defence. He also makes a cute "oof" sound when he falls over. Enjoy!

By bouncing off a couple of bad games with two consecutive shutouts (and Dallas too!) shows that Roli is responsible for his play and nothing short of a professional. I'm very impressed with him.

haha that's a great video. He doesn't really sound like himself when he's yelling..but it's kinda hot. "LEAVE HIM LEAVE HIM LEAVE HIM LEAVE HIM!" What an adorable spazz.

Adorable Spazz indeed. At least I can't complain of him being too mellow.

Shame about Roli's loss. Hopefully it won't affect him too badly?

He'll be fine. Hope he rips the D a new one, though -- they totally abandoned him.

Thanks for the news, hl. That's sad. All the best to Roli and family!

I know Roli will pull through, he has strong mentality. It must be very hard for him to be away from his family at this time though.

It's strange, but before yesterday's game, the Sportsnet camera had a shot of Roli in the dressing room alone trying to shut everything out. Something about his intense but melancholy look made me feel VERY uneasy...stupid gut instincts.

I remember a few years back when his dad died. His game was fine, but he looked like an absolute wreck. :hugs:


On a lighter note, the folks at http://www.cafepress.com/sportsmusings/765432 totally need to add a "Dwayne" to the available choices.

Fair enough, Court. Although this...

...isn't a bad substitute.

I totally have that! :blush:

Apparently, I 'totally' need to expand my vocabulary, too. Sheesh.
