Why not bring in someone to push Dubnyk next year?

It's not the preferred option, but it's better than anointing Dubnyk next year.

As for 'breaking the bank', that might not cost as much as people would think. The cap is going down $5.9M next year. Teams will be scrambling to make it under the cap. Top notch goalie salaries will be impacted as with every other position.

Khabi's $3.75M is coming off the books. Maybe the Oilers could get an upgrade in a trade involving Dubnyk and his $3.5M?
