Yeah he had some good games in those playoffs, I'll give him that. That being said - you kind of need to make the playoffs first before developing a reputation like that.

Look at Mike Smith and Craig Anderson - dudes were nobodies until they had some amazing playoff performances (Anderson 2010, Smith 2012).

You need a good team around a goalie before you pass judgement on them.

The Oilers are terrible. The forward group and defense are just a terrible combination of players.

All we can do is take the most relevant individual goaltending stat available - save percentage - to assess Dubnyk.
