Both show the same result. Goal tender is above league average in performance, skaters are below league average in performance.
DD would have to have a sv% of .935 or better to carry this team to the playoffs with
how the current skaters are playing.
How many goalies in the league (that have actually played more than a couple games) have sv% that high? ....1 at 15 games played.
People who think DD is the problem have some serious expectation issues in regards to goalies.
1st bolded - your kidding right? That is a more ignorant comment than observant.
2nd bolded - This is definatly true. Meiocre players in front of Duby for sure.
All goalies let in weak goals, but, He is attrocious in shoot outs. Throw those stats out the window once the SO starts, because he is not even close to average in this respect. Cannot lift his 4ft arms at all. Every team that have met the Oilers in SO, have taken advantage of this glaring fault of his.
