I think the Oilers just need to grow as a team and having another young goalie like Ben being traded for does nothing good for Dubynk.
Lehner struggle last season in the AHL. Ottawa trades for Bishop and Lehner realizes he is not going to be handed the role of back up and future starter. He matured and became better.

Also, If you have reliable goaltending you can afford to have your young stars go through some growing pains while still winning.
