¡Cuidado! Oilers Name Starting Goaltender For Cup Final
RALEIGH, N.C. – Oilers head coach Craig MacTavish announced this morning that injured goaltender Dwayne Roloson would be replaced by children’s entertainer Dora the Explorer.
The move addresses Edmonton’s goaltending woes and resolves the double-booking of Rexall Place on June 17.
Agent Ritch Winter praised the signing. “Dora is an adventurous, bilingual, Latina heroine who lives inside a computer,” he said from his Toronto office. “She’s a perfect fit for this hockey team.”
MacTavish spoke to the media prior to the team’s afternoon skate in Raleigh, North Carolina, and said he was persuaded by Dora’s unique approach to netminding.
“In each episode, Dora solves a problem based on specific words and phrases in conversational Spanish,” MacTavish offered. “Jus and Conks have worked hard on their game, but that’s not a skill set they bring to the table.”
