Rolston looks like he'll be testing free agency

From Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

According to Wild assistant general manager Tom Lynn, Rolston's agent, Steve Bartlett, has not returned a phone call since last week. The Wild hoped it would jump-start negotiations Saturday by making it known publicly that the team
had made three contract proposals to Rolston without receiving a counteroffer.

But it has not worked. The team continues to have no conversation with Rolston.

Read the entire story here.

The Rolston negotiations looked like they'd get settled early on, but it seems Rolston and his agent now prefer to test the waters. Rolston is 35, so this is certainly going to be his last payday. Maybe he thinks there are better options out there, and will at least take a look to see what those are.

Ballhype: hype it up!
