Why do people want Kreugar out?
Why do we have enforcers/pugilists?
Your telling me the talk that Horcoff had with the team when he came back did not boost the mental fortitude for the team did get them out of thier funk didn't matter?
This is huge physical and MENTAL game.
These guys are battling out there and your telling me the one guy that suppose to bail them out can't do it, they have to keep a high morale to keep working their a**ses off?
You bet you a** the team will crumble because of those weak links...oh.. but don't get me wrong, people already mentioned other weak links on this team. I just stating...obviously...that Dubnyk is definitely one.

And yes, I would have any of those other goalies than Dubnyk, Petro! I believe in all honestly, those other goalies are an upgrade.
But I guess we will never find out this season or the next.
I guess SJ players really folded when Neimi let in that wrap around by Jones.. 90% of the goals scored in NHL look stoppable on replays... Dubnyk is good enough a goalie.
Big ticket goalies like Price\Fleury\Luongo etc all let in weak goals.. Teams lose momentum but you have other issues if a bad goal completely deflates your team..
