I asked over in the prospects thread but maybe more suitable here... for those that have watched him... do you feel the acquisition of Hovinen has essentially leapfrogged him over Bunz and Roy in the org depth chart?

I know he's older than both so that maybe makes sense but do you think the Oilers keep Hovinen up in the AHL all season and maybe not re-sign Danis after this season? Then bring either Bunz/Roy up from Stockton next season to split with Hovinen?

I suppose it's possible the Oil may sign Danis again as a backup for Dubnyk as well and acquiring Hovinen was in anticipation of that... not wanting 2 inexperienced, young goalies like Bunz and Roy carrying the whole load in OKC next season.
