He was a a backup
and nothing more 4 years ago when he arrived. That was blatantly obvious to anybody paying attention but not to the Oilers management team as they continued to make him their starter year after year.
That signing was a blunder that hurt this hockey team and added years to the rebuilding.
No he wasn't. He beat out Huet as the starter in Chicago. They wanted to re-sign him but he left because of the contract Tambellini gave him.
I'm not arguing that it didn't turn out to be a horrible deal but you're wrong saying he was a backup put into a starting role.
