Good news.

Best goalie in the WHL!

With Roy playing very well this year and Bunz being dominating in spite of his WJHC snub and DUI incident, it lookis like things are looking up for goaltending prospects.

Good news. Curious to see how things play out next year in net for him and Roy.

tempest2i 03-19-2012 11:17 AM

I'm pleased that he's impressed the organization enough to earn that ELC.

I hope he continues developing and becomes a great goalie for this year down the road.

Nice to have him aboard.

Shanahanigans 03-19-2012 11:31 AM

I know Twitter is not a completely accurate way to gauge someone, but I've followed him since last year and he has a great attitude, mature beyond his years.

Bunz got a DUI? When did that happen? Never heard that before.

Lawgirl 03-19-2012 11:38 AM

The incident was last May. The trial was supposed to be beginning of March.

Ogopogo* 03-19-2012 11:51 AM

Good.

If Tambo doesn't do anything about our goaltending, can he be the #1 for us next season?

I hope you're joking.

thadd 03-19-2012 12:01 PM

Yay! Another contract! Let's push it to the limit! lol

Very happy to hear this happened. I think he's the best goalie we've got in our system.

SilverHaireDevil 03-19-2012 12:11 PM

Two goalies under contract atm, (err 4 with bunz and yann danis) barring some miracle don't expect a goaltending change until at least the trade deadline 2012-2013.

Its not like teams are breaking down the door to get at Khabbi/Dubnyk
so they are our guys going forward.

I know many people are looking at the sens and going why can't that be us?

Great new Coach, Vets kicking *** and taking names, Great goaltending, solid D (Karlsson having career year), rookies/youth playing great.

Some small differences between us and them, Meh Coaching, Vets mailing it in, Spongy Defense, average goaltending, rookies/youth playing great.

Plus the team just signed Tyler Bunz to a 3 year ELC all these things, plus the fact that our D prospects are maturing at a nice rate
means that outside of drafting some players on June 1 don't expect anything substantial to change with this team this summer.

Tambo is staying the course, at the behest of the guy who owns the team (billionaires typically can see the big picture and operate with long term goals).

The Oilers have 5 goalies under contract:

Khabby
Dubnyk
Danis
Roy
Bunz

I'd also say Karlsson is having more than just a career year. Likely one for the ages. I'd be very surprised if Karlsson puts up these numbers consistently.

SilverHaireDevil 03-19-2012 12:19 PM

Hehe my bad 4 goalies ah ah ah 5 goalies ah ah ah......

CantHaveTkachev 03-19-2012 12:19 PM

saw it on twitter...great news!

so, Bunz and Roy splitting duties in OKC next year? or do they bring back Danis...

Why not? If he is better than both incumbents, I say run with it.

Rush Bunz straight from junior to the NHL? Absolutely no way.

Also, Dubnyk hasn't been stellar but he has been fine. He has had his ups and downs just like most young goalies do.
They showed a stat last night that after his tough start to the season that he was
10-6 with a .920 save pct. going into last night. Not too shabby if you ask me.
I don't know if he's a future #1 but i know that he isn't junk either.

Anyway, glad to have Bunz aboard. I have high hopes for him as long as he's brought along slowly, spend at least one full season in OKC then he can fight for a spot going into '13-'14.

dnicks17 03-19-2012 01:36 PM

The era of hot Bunz begins.

Jepprey 03-19-2012 01:45 PM

Watch yo back Dubey! Bunz is coming!

Rushing our top goaltending prospect is the last thing we need to do. Look at the long road Schneider has taken to get to the NHL. That's what we should expect for Bunz.

only for another couple months. We have 3 signed up for next season:
Khaby, Roy and Bunz.
A lot can happen between now and September.

If by both incumbents you mean Roy and Danis then sure... he can be the starter in AHL next season.

I highly doubt Roy\Danis will just roll over an let him take an AHL starting spot. It is going to be a long road to NHL for him and there is nothing wrong in that.
Took Dubnyk 4 yrs to make the jump to NHL.. will see one of Roy\Bunz in the NHL in 3\4 years.
