These moves were not lateral, they made us worse.
This isn't a thing, Dubnyk is what he is, not a consistent NHL goaltender, no one knows what Scrivens is, so the unknown makes him a better option for the Oilers at this point, and it's pretty much impossible to argue.

Want to believe it's a "major downgrade", then you're just being willfully ignorant to what has happen here with Dubnyk over the past 3 years.
