Does anyone truly believe the Oilers will ever make the playoffs with Dubnyk as the starting goalie?
I get kind of a laugh at "the big easy" moniker. Because one thing I've noticed in Dubnyk for years is how occasionally he will get rattled, lose confidence, fight puck, during a game.

He's not very resilient given he's never played anything close to a pressure game here. I can't imagine how bad he'd look in the playoffs. He has trouble maintaining focus for 60mins. Mind wanders, gets out of focus. This guy needs constant instruction to get over habits and make corrections in his game.

Everything he needs to learn is in Quicks game but I doubt it ever gets anywhere near that.
