Go get him MacT!

I wanted Halak for the Oilers when the Habs traded him to the Blues... but do the Oilers want to spend 3.75 million in Cap on Halak? Personally I think he's worth the money and the cap hit (same as Khabi) but there's plenty of other holes to fill and players to sign. I honestly don't see the Oilers using assets to acquire Halak.

Personally though, I'd do it as I think he's a solid goalie and he's young enough (28) to easily get 5+ more good years of performance from him. I also probably overvalue the Goalie position compared to some who want to get by with adequate goaltending but why not make that area strong if you can do it at a cheap enough cost.

Dubnyk/Halak imo would be a very solid duo for years to come... one less area to worry about.
