I didn't see those numbers translating well to EDM at all, and I certainly did not think Khabby could go back to being a workhorse goalie on a bad team at that stage of his career. The guy had a lot of miles on him and a known history of injuries. That signing was bound to blow up in Tambo's face, and of course that's exactly what happened.
