Not to mention the fact that Dunham was never the most popular guy in the locker room to begin with. I think a guy like McLennan who knows he's just a back-up would love the opportunity to get 40-45 starts a year and pass something on to the next generation.

What it really comes down to is whether or not you think Dunham is an adequate goalie mentor. I don't.

I think that Dunham will do whatever he is asked to do. He is being paid, nicely I might add, to do whatever the team needs him to do. He is not a number 1 goalie and never has been in his career. When given the chance to, here, he failed. But he is decent enough IMO to keep the crease warm for one of the kids.
