Players react to Roloson trade

 Mark Eaton

--When you've played long enough, you realize it's a business. As a teammate it's sad to see him go, but we have to move on and deal with it. He played well for us and we've had the luxury of having two Number 1 goalies. In goaltending it's a lot about getting into a rhythm, so this gives Ricky an opportunity to play a lot and find his groove."

John Tavares

-It wasn't as big of a surprise as it was with Wisniewski. We knew we had Lawson come up once already and Ricky's been coming into his own, but Roli had good success and was a veteran guy that helped our team."

Andrew MacDonald

--He was a good veteran presence for us, but the organization thought this was good for the team. Eaton has won a Cup and Juice has had some playoff experience with the Caps as well. I think everyone in here has been on a winning team at some level, it's just a matter of learning to win at this level.

Jon SIm

--It's the nature of the beast. We're just going to have to move on and deal with it, but you're always surprised when something like that goes down.
