To Oilers
G Steve Mason

To Blue Jackets
G Nikolai Khabibulin

I think Khabby would be quality #2/mentor for Bobrovsky while Oilers pick up a reclamation project in Mason that can be used in tandem with Dubynk.

Thoughts?

Can the Oilers then sent Mason to the Stockton?

Probably a decent deal for both sides, but seeing as the Oilers may soon be drafting a Russian guy, wouldn't it be a good idea to have at least one other on the roster to mentor him?

That is half decent, RNH or Hall can't win calder trophies, might as well pursue a winner!

Yakupov has been playing in NA for a while now has he not?

Bobrovsky only came to NA in 2010 and plays same position as Khabby

Well yeah, but it's safe to say he'd have an easier time communicating with a fellow Russian speaker, as his English is still developing. Certainly he could do without one, but it wouldn't do him any harm to have a guy to help confirm some phrases he may not understand. I say this also as a Russian speaker who had to learn English when I came to Canada - it's extremely invaluable to have a guy you can communicate in your mother tongue with.

However, I could also be digging much too far into this, and Mason wouldn't be a bad addition to the squad, I just believe Khabi will soon serve a more valuable purpose in the dressing room.

I'm not sure if Khabi really is worth getting over Mason for a year, but I'd do it if we can't find anyone better.

Khabi, Bobrovsky, Tyutin, Nikitin and hopefully Yakupov by the end of the night

so it appears ...

Khabi for Mason would help out both clubs IMO.
