Meh, if Dubnyk puts up 30 wins, very possible if he got 20 last year, and if he gets the bulk of the starts, I don't think 10 more is unreasonable - and keeps the same kind of stats from last year, I think it's worth it - it seems clear that they think he's ready to carry the load.

If Johnson is a #1 defenseman, there is no way he or his agent agree to that deal. The average player on a cap team makes just over 3 mm. currently. Do you think EJ and his agent are dumb enough to accept a deal with term that eats UFA years for just over cap average despite being a #1 defenseman? I think thats absurd.

considering eskimo44 is almost on genius level, actually ill commit here eskimo44 IS a genius i guess that means that petry is a 3rd pairing dman because no 2nd pairing dman would sign for 1.75mil. We could say that tambo got petry on a good deal but that would just be stupid, if petry really was any good this contract wouldve been a lowball one from tambo, and would be insulting. Yet he accepts, how odd...

We can afford it for the next 2 years, but Dubnyk is 500K-1M overpaid. Petry is a bit of a steal though.

I was told he's better than Erik Johnson, if he's so much better, why is he getting about 2M less than EJ?

Man o man, no player gets seen through Oilers googles more then Petry.

Yes, he showed glimpses of being a good dman, but he also made some outrageous errors.
When Petry makes a blind up the middle pass, it get's choked up to "Rookie error"
When Horcoff has a clearing attempt that he banks of the glass hit a stantion and bouce to centre ice, and people are ready to burn his baby furniture.

I think Petry's contract is bang on...

Just a bit of a steal? It's a fairly big steal considering how promising he has looked

So disappointed in Dubnyk's contract. My god.

However, it's 5.25 million combined for the two of them and I was expecting close to 5.5-6 million so that's good.

3.5?? Yikes. Petry's deal makes up for it a bit I guess?

Yikes, what has Dubnyk done to deserve that contract. Way too frickin inconsistent for my liking. He is a 2-2.5 million goalie. Good thing we have loads of cap space and it's short-term. I really like the Petry contract, wish it was longer term.

Because he doesnt get an automatic 2M overpay for being a (disappointing) 1st overall?

I havent heard anyone trying to say that Petry is better than Erik Johnson, so relax, i doubt many Oil fans believe it. Petry WAS a huge surprise in how much his game improved last year. Dont get why hfboards seems to have a hate out for him.

Cause everything is coated with gold in Edmonton.

Petry is not a potential Top pairing dman. People always complain about Schenn being nothing more then a bottom pairing and he's 22... Petry is 25, he is what he is, a #4 defenseman.

Petry had good advanced statistic numbers and looks to be the guy on defense for the Oilers, so it's a low-risk high reward type deal.

Dubnyk on the other hand is an average NHL goalie at best. He got overpaid big time and I'm not so sure why. He should've made the same amount as Harding, Biron, etc.

Overpayment on Dubnyk and a steal on Petry.

There's nothing more to say.

If nothing else, hopefully this means that we won't be seeing much of Khabibulin between the pipes next year.

Interesting, I only remember him allowing soft goals... And there were some saying 3.9 for Pavelec is too much

Lucky Oilers managed to get Petry quite cheap so it should balance this insanity a bit.

Dubnyk is overpaid forsure, IMO about 750k.

Wideman is overpaid by about 1 million and it's 5 year deal with a NTC.

Wow, can't believe how much Dubnyk got. Petry's is Alzner-like steal, though.

He hasn't proven anything at all yet. He played like half a season at a high level.

Petry is 24 and hasn't even played two seasons.
