Too much money and too much term, bad contract.

Overpaid for a guy at age 33 when they could have got Matt Murray at age 26. Too much money but term is ok.

Seattle thanks you.

They've sealed themselves with a competent goalie in either Talbot, Stalock or Kähkönen. Or possibly Greenway.

What i would guess the majority of the people who voted no don't understand are the advanced metrics that prove how bad Al and Dubs were. On goals that were shots that almost all goalies should save they were the worst and the second worst goalies in the league. The wild have a top 5 d-core in the league metrics wise for goaltending. Now Talbot is a top 12 goalie with that same statistic and with the wild D in front of him he is a well above average goalie. Now if we would of had him during the season than Duby we win probably 6-8 more games and would of stood a better chance in the playoffs. Yes Duby was great for us but he has lost his edge and reports also show that when the re-start happened he was terribly out of shape and overweight. If you can't be ready to go for a playoff push then its time to move on. Also Its going to be Cam and Kappenen in the nets and Al will more than likely be in Iowa being a mentor to Hunter Jones.

*Sigh* Why 3 years? Well, I hope he regains that form he was in when the Oilers did well in the playoffs (can't remember the year off the top of my head)
