This almost reminds me of the 08-09 Blackhawks situation where the 'Hawks signed Cristobal Huet to $5 million per season with Khabibulin still on the team (but in the last year of his contract).

Khabibulin proceeded to have an unreal season and lead the 'Hawks to the third round of the playoffs. It will be interesting to see what the Oilers' declaration of Dubnyk does to Khabibulin and whether he has one more run in him. A good season from Khabi could at the very least get the Oilers something at the deadline. Maybe something along the lines of the Tom Gilbert-for-Salo deal.
