Edmonton jumped into the deep end of free agency today with the signing of goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin. Bob McKenzie is reporting this is a 4-year, $15M deal and represents the remaining “cap room” for the Edmonton Oilers this summer.
I think we should prepare ourselves for a trade that sends dollars away later tonight. No immediate word about whether or not this kills the Heatley deal.
He’s a veteran NHL goaltender, and this would be considered an overpay.
