The market isn't looking great for goalies, Fleury and Varlamov won't waive their NTC for Edmonton, James Reimer is hurt, Martin Jones is no better than what we have, and it has to be money in money out. Koskinen is the best we got, I'd prefer we play Skinner over Smith but management doesn't seem keen on doing so. Goalie problem won't be solved until the offseason, might not even be solved then looking at the position Holland has put this team in.It's high time the Oilers acquire some goaltending help if Stuart Skinner is not ready to be a starting goalie. Mikko Koskinen is a backup goalie, Mike Smith is all but done and Alex Stalock was traded to San Jose for future considerations. But they should avoid paying an arm and a leg for a rental.
Well Kulak is better than Lagesson and can help the team now going into the playoffs, so I think it's a good move. Overpay? Maybe a little but it's always a seller's market at the trade deadline.Lagesson and a 2nd round pick for Kulak.
I don't know what Kenny is smoking but that's a huge overpay if you ask me.
