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?
RNH has already proven to be a 1C, just because he is young does not mean that he is not a 1C. He has proven it already. Yes, if he was in BOS they would not start him as the 1C but he has more offensive skill then any of the centreman that BOS has and they have some really good centremen.
