last season when people defending Dubnyk would trot out his save % relative to goalies like Lunongo and say "look, he's not even that far off."
Here's the question that should be asked regarding Dubnyk:
Would you be confident going into the playoffs with a guy like Dubnyk?
I'm not sure how the answer could be yes to this question based on what we have seen from him throughout his career.
interestingly enough Dubnyk's sav% is better than Luongo this season... and would be as good\confident a goalie going into playoffs as Luongo
edit: as for the topic.. Dubnyk isnt elite but is good enough to keep a team in the game.. That is all we should be expecting from him. Just have to improve the team around him ..
edit#2: no mention of T.Thomas ?? He would be someone we should take a gamble on... The guy could still play like a top 3 goalie in this league..
