Your comment about the 'occasional' softie really weakens your argument and your crediblity. Most games with a soft goal is not occasional.
As for being dismissed about just seeing the highlights, well that's false. Believe it or not there are people who watch as many of the Oilers games as they can, without making baseless claims about knowledge of the position.
Dubnyk has the 26th GAA in the league. He still has poor puck handling skills and makes poor decisions. He hasn't even stopped half of the attempts he has faced in the shootout.
He plays well when the pressure is off. At other times he is uneven and lets in soft goals.
Thankfully Krueger is starting Khabi tonight.
Why would you bring up GAA? GAA is not a proper stat to judge a goalie, which is why everyone uses sv%. Dubnyk's sv% is still good, which is probably why you didn't use it. If the Oilers gave up 27 shots per game instead of 34, the GAA would go down to about 2, which would put him in the top 5 in the NHL.
