RE 09-10: The G

The Edmonton Oilers have zero “goalies in their prime” and their starter has some injury concerns. The two possible backups are unproven and in one case have no NHL experience at all.

I should mention that there’s little chance they run with this group throughout the season. The only way this works is if Khabibulin plays 65 games and he hasn’t been that active since 2002-03.

The Oilers first 20 games of the season are a killer, they play the 70′s Habs pretty much every night. I think it would be very easy for Quinn to do what MacT did: ride that nag ’till it drops and in the case of Khabibulin that’s probably what will happen.

The one position that could fall apart for this team in a quick hurry is goaltender. Should that happen, we might be looking at the lottery again.

My final tally for the 09-10 Oilers

  • GF: 255
  • GA: 247

That’s not a playoff team, but I’ve always maintained they’re not finished. We’ll see.
