Rolston will go to free agency

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

Despite having the Wild deal his exclusive negotiating rights to the Lightning, forward Brian Rolston will test the free agent market at noon. Regardless of where Rolston signs, the Wild will still get a draft pick in some form from the Lightning.

Rolston's name has been loosely connected to the Penguins (as well as 303 other teams) in rumors.

The Lightning's new owners have hit a home run on one of these deals so far and stuck out on the other.
