Every time he has a bad night and gets lit up because of the team in front of him sucks we'd be hearing about what a bad trade it was and we need to dump his contract and how the Oilers goaltending sucks.

We need a goalie that doesn't necessarily need a great team in front of him like Luongo does.

The Oilers need someone that can bail them out every time they give the puck away in their own end, give an odd-man rush or leave someone wide open in the slot for a glorious scoring chance.
Great. Unless Lundqvist, Rinne, Lehtonen, etc come available, we aren't trading for one of those anyway.
