NSH/EDM Hendricks for Dubnyk

Elliotte Friedman ‏@FriedgeHNIC
Just got off plane...hearing Matt Hendricks to Edmonton...not sure if out there

Hendricks for Dubnyk

Will switch to confirmed with link when more information is released. Surprised Poile could find a taker. That contract was a mistake from the word go.

It's for Devan Dubnyk per Yahoo Sports.

Edit: Should say I love this. We pay more this year but we get rid of those final three awful years of Hendricks' contract.

So if true he is a UFA at season's end. 3.5 m cap hit

You guys should have done this 2 months ago... Get a serviceable goalie back for an awful contract on Hendricks.

LOL we got rid of Hendrick's awful contract and got an NHL level goaltender to roll with for the rest of the season. Good deal.

Dubnyk isn't great but he is at least not an AHL guy that shouldn't be in the league (Hutton) or a guy that is way too inexperienced to play regular NHL right now (Mazanec).

So who stays up? While I think Maz has played better than Hutton, I think it would be better for him to go to Milwaukee and get some more starts since I assume Dubnyk might be the starter.

Yo Smashville folk....maybe I'll get this answered the longer it takes this thread to develop, and a big part of it is that I haven't kept up to date on what's going on with Rinne and his recovery from all the things related to the hip injury, but is this move one that signifies concern that you won't see Rinne back this season? Was it ever a plan to have him back this season?

I do see some dancing in the streets about being freed from Hendricks' contract, so the salary dump could be a big factor in the move too.

I don't know which makes me happier - getting outta' that contract or having a serviceable goalie.

Methinks, however, we won't be seeing Peks anytime soon.....

It's entirely possible we're going with three goalies for the time being. It's not like we don't have the roster space or anything resembling consistency in goal. We have to recall a forward now, though, or trade for one, because we only have 12 on the roster. I would assume Forsberg is on the way up.

I like the deal on the basis of trading Hendricks' awful contract for an expiring one in Dubnyk that potentially helps us fix a need (although Dubnyk is having the worst season of his career right now), but this just strikes me as a really odd trade that more or less came from nowhere.

Apparently the Oilers will pick up half of Dubnyk's contract as well, according to Willy

I'm scratching my head a little on this one. Still, it frees up a roster spot for hopefully one of the young, talented forwards (coughForsbergcough) from Milwaukee. It makes me worry that they've heard some bad news about Rinne, though.

Half of his remaining salary, right? So roughly $875,000?

Regardless, that's hilarious. We completely won this trade.

Wonder if this is a deal that could have been done earlier on, and what exactly the Oilers want with 3 more years of Hendricks at that price. That said, nice job correcting that mistake and unloading the contract. Interesting to see what Dubnyk can do in a tighter system. Also frees up a bottom 6 slot for an actual bottom 6 guy.

Nope...Dubnyk makes $3.5 M. There is no doubt you won this deal.

Best case scenario is/was having Rinne back just before the Olympics. Trotz said that this morning on the local radio he did.

While I don't think we have any hard info, I think alot of us would be surprised if we saw Rinne back anytime before the start of next season.

And yes, we're very happy to dump that contract.

Great trade for the Preds. Hendricks's contract was awful for us. Redundant player for us. Dubnyk isn't the best, but is a good fill-in for the rest of the year. Gives us the ability to get Maz some AHL time or send down Hutton.

Damn Poile just fleeced someone else. But it also showed he made a big mistake signing Hendricks.

A tiny part of me wants to believe that part of this deal is GMDP sending a message to the coach that he would like to see his 4th line made up of grinders and #25 skating with a few more skilled players.
