Dubnyk seems like a good guy, but he is just not the goalie for this team. You can always tell the value of a goalie if he would easily find a job as a number one on any other team. Tell me a team he would be a number one on and do as good or better then he is now.....
He lets in to many soft goals (regardless of his numbers), is not adept at getting side to side quickly enough, and once he is down (yes, he is tall - but the Oilers drafted him) he has issues getting up fast enough.
It is such a shame for this team to have confidence issues with the man in net, but if we had a good #1 tender that could steal games on a consistant basis, this team would be in a playoff position.
You can like Devan as a person all day, but he doesnt have the chops to dominate at this level. He is 27 years old, this team has been standing by him long enough. Remember this is a business.
