MVP without a doubt is Dubnyk with second place going to the defense as a whole.

The Oilers are last place in the NHL in shot differential per game at -7.8, which roughly equates to giving up 0.5 goals a game.

Reason the Oilers are still in contention is the vast improvement in save percentage (currently 6th in the NHL) - 0.908 in 2011 to 0.929 - which is a by-product of both Dubnyk's play and the defensive contributions of the team.

Oilers are destined to disappoint this season if the don't start improving in the shot battle.
