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.
Yes thats my opinion. Khabby was no better than a backup when the Oilers signed him.

He hasnt played over 50 games and had a SV% of over .910 since 2003/04. Its clear that he hadnt been an effective starter since that season and with advancing age (and too much mileage) he wasn't going to return to that form anytime soon.

This isn't revisionist history either...I said as much the day the Oilers signed him.
