Devan Dubnyk has been with the Oilers organization, professionally, for atleas the last 8 years, from ECHL, to AHL, to the NHL. There's nothing "new" for the organization here, the player is what he is. Scrivens has atleast a bit of potential to be a better or atleast cheaper equal to Dubnyk, and it's hardly a loss to find out of that's the case.
Especially when you consider Dubnyk's "standing" with the Organization (no faith).
Edit: And well true, apparently, that they are the same age, they took drastically different paths to the NHL. I'm not arguing it's not a risk, It's just stupid to suggest this player is a "major downgrade" from the guy who simple wasn't and was Never Going to Be good enough.
