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.
