Save percentage is what all the Dubnyk defenders point to in making their case.
Fuhr is easily one of the best goalies of all time when the money was on the line.
Dubnyk has proven repeatedly that when the games count his head just isn't there. His streaks of brilliance come when there is no pressure. That is why a solid backup who can push him is needed. Either he thrives under pressure and he is the goalie of the future or he is not.
While I'd like to see him prove his worth when games mean something, I just don't see it happening.
