Dubnyk, blah, he couldn't even stop the puck with regularity when it didn't matter. How is it going to be any different when the Oilers are expected to win?
You don't need competition to be a #1 center, what a ridiculous concept. That's like saying Tavares or Toews are only #1s for the same reason.
Just watching RNH last season, as well as his statline, it's quite clear he's a #1C. He would have gone to the all-star game had he not been injured.
