Things change, as do opinions. Just because at one point someone maybe thought Dubnyk was a better goalie than X, doesn't mean those same people didn't see more of them and go "Hmm, I was wrong, he's not".
This is the logical answer.

I'll readily admit I was one of the ones pumping his tires last year, and thought he was finally ready to be a #1. Dude had a .920 save percentage last year on the Oilers; that's pretty good.

He simply fell of a cliff. Happens sometimes, more often to goalies it seems. Which is why I laugh at the ridiculous proposals I see for goalie prospects who have never done anything close to putting up a .920 in the NHL.

EDIT: And I should add that while I was a supporter of Dubnyk, I never said anything nearly as foolish as not trading him for Price.
