to about 2.40 GAA and .925 SV% with the Oilers being a potential top 5 team come January, does that warrant consideration from Steve Yzerman? I think it does.
to be quite honesty, Dubes has a track record on the big ice already and with team canada. THAT would work for or against him depending on what the brass think of that. IMHO they will look at that track record rather than a blip of success on NHL ice.
