His stats are respectable but his gameplay is suspect, the Oilers would be in and ahead on more games if he had beter gameplay. Watch his movement when he is under pressure, he has little fire and gives up, it's that simple. No wonder there were 4 Oiler players last night facing Dubnyk last night in front of the net on the goal that went in of Gagners stick. Why would it be necessary for 4 guys to have there back turned to the other team? Lack of confidence in the goalie in front of them, they certainly were not clearing the crease or reading any plays.
I won't deny that Dubnyk's abilities are suspect and that for a big guy he seems to make himself small, but the fact remains that something is working for him. He's stopping more shots then a lot of other guys.
So while we probably can find a guy that appears to have better mechanics, is that going to result in better on ice results?
