The reason goaltenders are better now than they were in the 80s and early 90s is that drop to the butterfly in anticipation of shots rather than rely on their reflexes Billy Ranford style. Dubnyk's entire game is built around this principle.
Sadly he starts day dreaming and forgets this, far too often.
Million dollar talent. 5 cent head.
You do realize that it was a no-look pass from the boards into the slot where there were no Belarus players, that went off both of Campbell's skates and in? And you're blaming this fluke goal on Dubnyk somehow being lazy?
If you're going to slam him, make sure it's about a goal that is actually his fault.
