Over the last 2 games, where The Oil have played a much improved structurally sound game, get the puck out of their own zone better, and haven’t spent over 40 mins in their own end, Duby has looked a lot better, every goalie in the league will struggle when they have no one playing for them in front of them. All of sudden we are playing slightly better D, and look how much more relaxed and confident he is. From the 9 game road trip till now, it’s been a tale of two teams, which means it’ll be a tale of two goalies. I am not sure on numbers, but from an on lookers view, it seems the quality of scoring chances have decreased, which means less work load, less chance for glaring holes.

You look at a goalie like Ryan Miller, who was all world not too long ago, he looks like a shell of his former self, put him on a better defensive team, he will be back to what he is. No goalie is expected to carry a team that has played this bad in front of him. With a good team. Duby can be a perfect goalie. He is big, somewhat athletic, makes big saves. His lack of late game clutch saves is what he really needs to improve. All in all, high amount of shot against, is going to inflate anything, the real tell well be when we give up 25-30 shots a night, if he sustains it, not 35-30.
