i really don't understand why DD isn't getting more starts for us.... he has .042% better save percentage, which is a VERY LARGE difference as far as save percentages go... its the difference between the best save% in the league and the 19th best.... its 1.25 goals/games, assuming 30 shots against.... DD has a 0.99 GAA advantage as well, which lines up pretty nicely with his save% advantage

the only thing i can think of is that management thinks they can get something for khabi on the trade market, and they are hoping he turns his game around.... OR .... management has really bought into the "tank for a top-3 pick theory" and also doesn't want to drive up DD's next contract by playing him in lots of games

if they were actually trying to win games, it simply makes no sense to be running with khabibulin right now... i'm fine with this btw, as i'm a big supporter of finishing in the lottery again this year
