I would not necessarily say he is the OKC back up though. I think if say JDD goes down. That they would split the starts probably with JDD getting a few more along the way.
Gerber may be a better, more consistent goalie right now than JD or DD, but the Oiler's aren't looking for a old back up, they are trying to see if they have a young starter in JD or DD, and the only way to find out is to play them. Yes, Gerber will get starts in OKC, but as long as the young guys are healthy and not struggling BIG time, one of them will be the starter on the farm, and one will be the back in the NHL getting at least 35 to 40 percent of the games up here.
