Are you seriously trying to argue Devan Dubnyk is a better goalie than Grant Fuhr in the respective times that they played?
Are you basing this solely on save percentage? lol
Comparing todays play with yesteryears when system play was rarely applied.
jebus, hand in your Oiler fan card and get to the back of the line. You make it sound like Fuhr was some limpbiscuit the Oilers had to overcome every night.
