He shouldn't need another goalie to make him play well.
I don't know if there's a connection between the Bryz signing and DD playing better as of late, but during the summer I was loudly calling for them to sign a goalie that could push DD and even take over the starting spot if he faltered... a "tandem goalie," if you will. I was extremely upset when they brought in a "supporting goalie" like JLB (who I don't even think is a good backup unless he almost never plays) and predicted it would do serious damage to the team at some point this season.
