I really like this deal, I also hope it means that Edmonton will be shopping hard for a bonafide starter.

I'm looking for the catch. The Oilers doing something smart with goaltending (or anything at all) is just so foreign to me that there has to be a catch.

not bad, and 2 years at $2M is relatively low risk

Waiting to see the final $ amount, but if it's around $2m that's decent.

I approve. 2 years @ ~4m is a great deal.

Although it ends when Eakins contract is over...which probably means Eakins is here to stay.

That is fantastic. At $2M I wish it was a year or 2 longer but if he keeps this up he will hit the motherload in 2 years.

~$2m / 2 years sounds like a pretty decent contract for him to prove himself.

I like it.

Not bad. Remember, Dubbie was getting 3.5M.

2 more years at just over 2 million?

Sounds good to me. Could be a steal of a deal if he grabs the reins as the #1.

2 years is good term for both sides. It gives Scrivens an opportunity to increase his value if he can keep up his career numbers to date, and if he doesn't, then the Oilers aren't on the hook long term on an overpriced backup.

If he can keep up his career numbers, this deal could end up being our Kiprusoff.
