But comparing Luongo to Dubnyk will not come out in Dubnyk's favor in any scenario. Regardless of contract status. Dubnyk is the next Alex Auld in my opinion. Luongo at 33 hold the majority of goaltending records for 2 different NHL organizations.
I am not saying Dubnyk is equal to RL. I am saying he's better than 66% of RL and at 66% of the cap hit. Which is good enough for the Oilers right now. They aren't built to be a team that relies on exception D/G to grind out wins anyways. They are built to be a team that outscores there problems.

And you'll forgive me if I don't take your Auld comparison as gospel.

I do agree that Luongo isn't likely to get traded in the division.

The player they would be waiting to clear could be Shawn Horcoff.
Mike Gillis - "And it isn't who anybody thinks it is"

That rules out Florida, Philly, Chicago, TO and Edm imho. All have been linked extensively to RL.
