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.
Your point is fair but do you not think the goals he lets in are soft and often come at the worst of times (ie, after we score or late in a game that's tied or we're leading)?

Your goalie needs to give the team confidence.
The way he is playing lately deflates more than uplifts. That's the problem.

I agree he needs more goal support but two 2-goal third period leads squandered in less than a week = not good.
