Well the Flyers went to the cup with a "mediocre" goalie and the Hawks won with one.
I think Dubnyk is at least average. Could be on the verge of becoming OK and hell... maybe he'll rise up to decent eventually.
I think he was going to get $2+ million anyway you cut it and $2.5 was probably what most expected so we are arguing over ~$1 million in a $70 million cap world.
They obviously weren't going to get another goalie because about eleventy billion goalies have come and gone throughout the NHL as UFA's and in trades over the last few years.
They look to be committed to seeing what Dubby can do and Khabi is probably the backup until he's off the books unless some team is crazy enough to take him at this age. He's a good mentor/friend for Yakupov etc etc.
Who will be Dubby's backup the following year? Interesting to see who they use... maybe a guy like Danis until Roy/Bunz are ready to come up for a sniff.
