Given that Dubs record over last two years is 32W 33L 11OTL
If you don't count OTL nearly every team or goalie in the league is near .500.
Actually, I do count OTL. I go by % of points - so an OTL is basically a tie (or at least better than a regulation loss).
Dubnyk last year in the 43 games he got a decision on went: 20-20-3. So he captured 43 of a possible 86 points - exactly .500
I don't want to get into a big semantics argument, but surely you will concede that even if not as good as a tie used to be, an OTL is certainly better than a regulation loss.
Khabibulin last year in his 39 decisions was 12-20-7 (including a ridiculous October) - 31 out of a possible 78 points (39.7%)
The previous year, Khabi went 10-32-4. So 24 points of a possible 92 for 26.1%.
Dubnyk went 12-13-8. 32 of a possible 66 points for 48.5%. Total over the last 2 years 75 of 152 - so 49.3%. About as close to 50% as you can get (just wanted to explain how I got my "almost exactly 50%")
