Maybe this year and next but in 2 years maybe 3 what happens? You could easily be stuck with a goaltender who might only be a backup at best eating up $5 million in cap space. Dont try and say that goaltenders nowadays last into their 40's the Oilers just went through 3 seasons with a former top notch goaltender who helped them to 30th place once they overpaid to get him, it's not true for all goaltenders.
