Because Khabby can still play the game when he's healthy and well-rested. He's a good backup even at his age. The Oilers brought Khabby to be a starter, which he can't do now and wasn't capable of doing even four years ago. Replacing Roloson with Khabby because Roli wanted a 2 year deal (when the Oilers only wanted to give him 1) with a less capable Khabby, and giving him a 4 year contract to boot, should be considered Tambo's signature move for this franchise. More than anything, it's what caused them to go from being merely a bad team to being the worst team in the league.
