Nobody saw Dubnyk's collapse of epic proportion coming. The three years previous he had very respectable numbers. It's not surprising that coaching and management tried to let him play out of his funk. MacT knew he would have been raked over the coals if he had tried to make a trade, and Bryz was never a sure thing. That's why nobody else who needed goalie depth went out on a limb for him either.
