Maybe, maybe not. There are so many variables. Perhaps Gillis values Colborne too highly and the Oil would actually have needed to give up something much more valuable in their opinion. Perhaps Oil management simply doesn't want to tie up that kind of money for that long of term on an aging goalie (not old, but his prime is limited now). Perhaps Katz actually has no issue with his GM doing his job as GM and trusts that if Tambo doesn't make that deal, there's good reason for it. Or maybe (and this one is hard to believe according to most HF'rs), the Oilers are actually happy with Dubnyk. We are not talking about Crosby or Malkin here, its Luongo.
