I dont remember any other goalie in the history of the oilers where fans felt squeemish on every shot and every goal had to find evidence that it wasnt the goalies fault. "He had no chance on that one" and then the fan nods to himself and everyone else...thus giving credibility to the goal and saying "that wasnt the bad one that Dubie will let in" as said fan returns to biting his nails and getting drunk in fear of the centre dump in and easy pad shot.
If the Oiler players have witnessed this s*** they either are losers or hate that he is back there. They will never win with him. The guy is ancient too... not a prospect anymore. Yay class of 2004 pfffffft.
Interesting. Did you know that if the season ended today, Dubnyk would set a new Oilers franchise record for sv%?
