You know how that turned out? Let me just tell you, I'm very glad that Khabby isn't signed for 4 seasons at this point.

Do I think the Oilers need an upgrade in net? Yes.
Do I think the Oilers should trade for a 33 year old, with a similar resume, signed until he's 43? No.

Once burned, twice shy.
Luongo is a much more consistent goalie, younger & overall skill wise a lot better. A clear upgrade in goal. You're fooling yourself or trying to put Luongo down if you think Luongo has as little impact as Khabibulin did for you.
