The Canucks game was an incredible game, no doubt Dubnyk played well. The other two games were good solid games and he got some luck. Not 'stealing' games IMO, but arguable.

Other than that ... not so much.

He definitely sees a lot of pucks, but the softies kill the spirit of the team.

Fuhr let in softies when he was here. No where near as many as Dubnyk. More importantly, he would let in the softies when the powerhouse Oilers were blowing teams out.

A softie when the game is tied or it's a one goal game can be a back breaker. Dubnyk has let in at least eight of those this year. The mental focus is just not there when it counts.

He stole the 3-1 win in Columbus too (when paajarvi scored the SH GWG)
