The Oilers just have no clue as an organization how goaltending works. I mean we've had our chances to grab a goaltender of the future in drafts and **** the bed every time. Cory Schneider was the consensus #2 ranked goalie in the 2004 draft, yet the Oilers thought they were smarter than everyone else and went for the non-consensus #4 ranked goalie in Dubnyk. Then in 2011, the Oilers had John Gibson sitting there for them on a silver platter, but they pass on him to exercise nepotism with Musil and draft a goalie that didn't even get an ELC. The only goaltender on this team worth a damn at any point in the past 10 years was Dwayne Roloson, and that was only for one playoff run.
