LaBarbera to Oilers

Oilers add a solid backup goalie in Jason LaBarbera and a strong bottom-six center in Boyd Gordon… and take both away from Phoenix.

A new division rival signing the worst goalie in the league. I approve.

Strong words, especially from a team that inflates their goaltenders' stats.

He goes by Lolbarbera or just LoL for short btw. But he seemed like a pretty good locker room kind of guy for what that is worth.

Labarbera was the best man at my cousins wedding. Not a great goalie

Not wild about the signing but I won't cry over a 1 year.

Worst goaltender in the league? lol His numbers were pretty good for the Coyotes last year. 92 save percentage on a team that shouldn't even be in Arizona lol.

Sure it's not a big signing but seems decent to me.

Jason "the flopper" LaBarbera to the City of Champions. This will be interesting to see him flop around on the ice with a young team like the Oilers in front of him.

he's not that bad, he's ok as a backup but it's Dubnyk that Edmonton needs to worry about
