I like it. Lower cap hit than I was expecting.

Tambellini continues to surprise.

Again I say....people need to start recognizing him as a very good GM.

Like the cap-hit.

Don't like the term.

Will live with it.

He outplayed Luongo in the playoffs this year.

I'm shocked, I thought it would be at least 5 or 6 million.

Anderson now, who correct me if I'm wrong, put up better stats (or close enough) than most of those guys.

Khabyy is +35 so that cap hit is there whether or not he is.

Wow, great deal for Edmonton, I'm a little disappointed that the Hawks couldn't try and woo him back, but as long as he stays healthy, should be a good pickup for Edmonton. One cautionary tale, is that he could really struggle if the defense in front of him is bad.

This is without a doubt one of the best deals of the day. His age might play a factor in the latter stages of the contract but hell, for two years of solid 'tending this is a genius move.

Maybe this will make edmonton more attractive to other free agents - at least they seem to be one big step ahead of the Canadiens at this point.

Very good deal for him and Edmonton. He really showed how he can play last year. I was hoping that Chicago would dump Huet and resign Bulin. A man can dream....a man can dream

The Northwest Division has the best goaltending in the league now.

Luongo
Khabby
Kipper
Backstrom
Anderson

Good God!

How does it work if the Oilers were to buy him out as oppose to him retiring?
