They weren't going to put Oettinger in a situation where he is the starter next season. Though they might end up in that situation as both goalies coming off of surgery and who knows how effective they will be.
Crawford would have been a better option, but don't know what he's looking for and he is an risk with is concussion history.
Up next that leaves Greiss, or long shots who can put up quality numbers in the Stars system. It's those systems where any goalie can have success in if they can stop the easy shots.
At least the narrow vision of the front office thinking Khudobin was the reason for the team's playoff success, so they won't be able to improve the forwards at all, unless they plan on also trading away Radulov for nothing in return.
