What have you seen from Dubnyk or LaBarbara that makes you think they could be a #1 goalie? They both let in soft as hell goals and I have yet to see Dubnyk steal a couple games for us.
With a solid goalie our record sure wouldn't be this bad to start the season - we were right in a big chunk of games.
Eakins wants to know what happened to our confidence? Look at the goaltending. We're too scared to make any mistakes or it's in the back of the net.
That's obviously far from our only problem but we NEED a legit starting goalie.
