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?
This I could get on board with BIG TIME...just probably not a realistic option until the off-season.
It's definitely not a realistic option this season. Probably not in the team's best interest as well.

Have Dubnyk carry the load the rest of the way. Maybe four or five starts for Khabi.

If Dubnyk can turn it on and carry the Oilers to the playoffs then he'll prove his many doubters wrong. If not, hopefully he plays well enough to be enticing as part of a big trade.
