He's just not getting the support he was getting last year.
I don't blame him either. Roloson is probably going through the same thing Raycroft was before the last month. There's pretty much no team in front of him, yet the media is starting to turn up the heat on him even though it's pretty clear game in and game out. I guess it makes for a good story.
"It's not the way it's going to be. We have to be very, very patient and build this the right way. We have to go through a process. It may be painful. I hope it isn't. But we're prepared for all the bumps and pratfalls and potholes in the road ahead. I'm prepared for it anyway, or I wouldn't have come." - Ron Wilson, Head Coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
