Oilers missed a pretty good opportunity to add a goaltending upgrade in the offseason...if that's what they really believed was necessary. Unfortunately for them, 2 of the teams unloading goalies happened to be in their division, but I guess we don't really know how that affected negotiations (if there were any).

I think the Oilers need more than a goalie like Halak, who although has proven himself to be able to get hot in short periods of time, hasn't proven to be a consistent star goalie. They need that consistent star goalie to be a difference maker night in night out if they want to be a playoff team with the questionable defense they have.
