When a team is playing this poorly, all their weaknesses will rear their ugly heads. Dubnyk is a good goalie with lots of upside and potential to be a star but has had disastrous start. This really causes a chain reaction of breakdowns in all positions esp defense which exposes guy like J. Schultz, Petry, Smid and Ferrence. J.Schultz and Petry are still learning the game and can improve greatly. If Dubnyk plays lights out from here on in, we will get back on track and if not, we are screwed. This road trip will reveal if this is the case or not. If not, Anaheim Ducks has 3 really fine goalies the latest being Andersen with a 4 game winning steak (in a row). Hillier is a UFA at the end of this NHL season. Perhaps, the Oilers should make a pitch for Hillier if Dubnyk is continuing to stall at the starting gate (actually at the first turn before the stretch).
