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.
Not that I'm defending our choices, but Dubnyk was ranked ahead of Schneider
