I think the Gerber signing played a lot of roles...Khabi not going to prison right away made things a lot easier, but I think Gerber's intended role was as a veteran goaltender for the OKC team (to help along one of the younger guys) and be an available call-up for injuries if it gets real bad.
if Khabi had to spend considerable time in jail then there'd have been a strong chance that he'd stick as the backup here.
