Oilers Sign Jonas Gustavsson

Journeyman goaltender will join Oilers for 2016-17

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The Oilers have  inked Jonas Gustavsson to a one year deal to join the Oilers for the 2016-17.  Gustavsson last was seen in Boston in 2015-16 where he posted a 11-9-1 with a .908 save percentage.  Prior to last season, Gustavsson spent three years in Detroit where his SV% exceeded .910 exactly once.

A handful of goaltenders including Jhonas Enroth were available at the time of this writing, and with that, the Oilers definitely missed out. Gustavsson's lifetime SV% is a not-replacement-level .902 and I've got to believe that there were better options for a bit more capital.  With a career .902 SV%, I'm less than thrilled.

Can Cam Talbot play 75 games?
