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.
If he drops from .922 to .905 that's an extra 15 goals against (850 shots). That's probably worth more than 3 points. FYI, Quick, Brzgalov and Brodeur are at or below .905, so no you don't get to reallocate all dubies' skillz and bump the sv% to .910. FYII (lol) At .910 it's still an extra 10 goals against.
