The silly one goal a game rap is justified but he makes up for that with two goals prevented just by standing in a good position.

I'm sold on this guy but he needs a good back-up to spell him off every 3-4 games as his play seems to fall off when overplayed. As the Oilers get better and the shot count goes down, maybe this also goes away.
My brother in law and had discussed exactly this last night. He thinks Bishop would be a solid back up that could toss in 20 or so starts a year behind Dubnyk. I agree with him.

Watching Dubnyks play, he seems at his best when he doesn't appear to be moving. He has a great economy of motion and uses his big frame extremely well. His shutout streak ended at just over 166 minutes.

I am comfortable with him going forward even more so when the defence in front of him improves either via trade or when Klefbom, Gernat, Maricin etc....arrive.
