(hints) If you don't stop enough pucks you don't get any wins and you don't get to the shootout.

Would we be better off if dubnyk's sv% was .905 and his shootout sv% was 1.000?
.905 is a pretty terrible save percentage. How about .910 for perfection in the shootout?

Sadly for the Dubnyk fans it is quite possible that the team could be better off in that scenario and it's not that hard to imagine.

Dubnyk with stronger stickhandling cuts down on one shot a game. Dubnyk with better rebound control cuts down on one more shot a game.

Take those two changes and he allows five more goal over this season gets him to .910. Is that worth three more points in the standings right now for winning the three games he lost in the shootout?

I know what I'd pick.
