And when Elliot doesn't have the chance to rotate with Halak, we all see what happens.
I think Dubnyk would be fine in a rotating duo or as an excellent backup.
He just hasn't shown true #1 potential. What I said when we gave him the huge contract last year and even the first 10 games this year is: can he do this over the long haul?
Yeah, our D sucks and it's harder to focus when the team is in a freefall and you know you can't let in a goal or your team will lose, but that doesn't give him a free pass to allow bad goals.
On the Chabot issue - I think overall Dubnyk's positioning and aggression and rebound control have improved over the last 3 years.
Not sure if Chabot is to blame for the barn door five-hole or repeated moments where Dubnyk isn't hugging the post.
