But here's the burning question...

What if the goaltending doesn't come back to Earth? People seem to forget that despite the 29th place finish, Dubnyk actually played really well the last couple months of the previous season. Goaltending has to steal you at least some points, but it's not as if the team is going to sleep all season either.
