I'd do a Horcoff for Fleury swap. If Pittsburgh wants to buyout Fleury anyways, it'd be cheaper for them to buy out Horcoff. We could have Dubnyk and Fleury battle it out for the number 1 spot. If Fleury doesn't regain his confidence here, we can always buy him out next season.

Bylsma just stated that MAF is their #1 goalie.

Sure, didn't look that way in the playoffs. Gotta think Bylsma done there after the way they went out, no?

Bylsma may be on the way out. Likely that MAF leaves Pittsburgh regardless of the coaching siutation.

For the Oilers to make a move for MAF you would have to do something with Dubnyk. 8 1/2 M signed for goaltending in 2013-14 would be too much for the team.

I consider Dubnyk to be roughly in the same tier as Fasth, Bishop, and Scrivvens, which is pretty much middle of the pack.
The Bruins will likely be losing their backup, Khudobin, to the KHL unless another NHL team gives em a look.

He's a bit older, but he's been a patient farm hand who's been stuck behind some brilliant goaltenders for a while. Now with Subban in the B's pipeline, it seems only a matter of time. I think he's probably ready to show another club what he can do if he doesn't get a 1 way deal from the B's this time around. Unlikely with our cap situation given the guys we need to get re-signed.

If the Oil were to offer a 1 way deal (even if only for a year), I think he'd likely put the KHL on hold for now and give it 1 more go. If you're looking for a guy who can compete and push Dubnyk, I think he's your guy.

Not a big name, and not the prettiest goaltender out there; in fact, he's pretty much wild as hell but he battles his ass off. 1 of those guys who seems to play better when he's getting shelled.

Definitely worth a look for what it would cost you, imo. Could very well end up with a keeper.

let's throw 3 mil/1 yr deal at Khudobin, then have him and Dub share duties for 40-50 games and then see what can be had here. he is adamant that there's no use in waiting for an opening anymore, and he could get himself a sweet deal in the KHL in no time. so you call him and tell that a job is here if he comes and grabs it; not wait for chance again but compete right away and earn actual money in the process. if it works (even if Dub gets motivated and starts to turn around the corner), we have the case sorted; if it doesn't, we just flush all we have in this dept and start over next year. the thing is, in Dobby's case you have to involve some money along with chances; but it's not like we couldn't.

I say no to an expensive goalie. If Ray Emery could be had at a decent price I think he'd be good for this team and could compete with Dubnyk to be the starter.

I think you could get Emery cheap. 2 years $4.5 to $5.5M total.

It would be worth a shot. If Dubnyk earns the starters job reward him with a long-term contract. If not, cut him loose and you still have Emery around for a year when you go after a big name FA goalie.

I think Emery is a good story, but I'm not sure if he is a good goalie.

But Emery is a low risk/high reward potential signing at improving the goalie play. Low risk, because he'll come cheap and to a short-term. Maybe dubnyk steps it up with competition? Meh, it might happen.

If Emery were to work out that would be great. At least the team took a chance while avoiding getting locked into a contract the length of Khabi's.

Rumours say they will both be gone. So there's that.

how about #7 for Bernier?

I think it would be a great deal.

Nope. If you are trading that pick it better be for a center or a defenceman not a backup goalie.

Is there any doubt the Oilers will be using one of their 2nds on Tristan Jarry?

Why do I get the feeling they're going to sign Tomas Greiss?

Awful. Very overrated IMO especially on HF and he has proved squat to be worth a top 10 pick.

Yes and yes. Greiss is a guy who may fly under the radar a bit and may come quite cheap too.

i think if the Oilers really want to upgrade at goal, they sign Mike Smith.

Rollie named new goal-tending consultant for Anaheim.

Wish we had hired him.

Yeah... it's been discussed here earlier. I think a lot of us are down with him as an option. Definitely a low risk option.

Thanks for swinging by and taking an interest.

Do you think anyone will make the same mistake with Smith that the Flyers made with Bryzgalov? Playing well in Phoenix proves nothing.

7th overall for a goalie who's proved less than in the nhl than dubnyk, and who has a worse save % than dubnyk? Not a good deal.

How about we roll with dubnyk as #1 because he's already proved that he is a #1 goalie, and sign a cheap veteran back up. I don't understand the hate for dubnyk, he's a very good young, relatively cheap goalie who can grow with the team. We have WAY bigger problems to address on the oilers this year than goaltending.

I also like the idea of Greiss.

The options I like best are Greiss, Labarbera and Khudobin.

Big pass. He's going to be overpaid and won't look as good on a different team. He has the ability to steal games, but he's drastically overrated
