Can JDD hold down the fort?

Khabby isnt on the ice again today, which means he will likely not start tomorrow.

If his injury turns out to be serious, can JDD take the big minutes? Pick up a FA tender? Swing a trade?

Thoughts

After his spectacular performance in facing 62 shots last night? Good luck, better chance getting DiPietro.

Deslauriers will be as good as our defence allows him to be. if the d steps up and the forwards come back into the zone and contribute then i think he can carry us till khabibulin returns. he has the potential to do so anyway. but hes still young and has a lot of work before he is a starter in this league.

Yes, for the whole season? I have my doubts, but for a short period of time, he'll be fine.

I think he'll be ok, Smytty's out right?

My only concerns were the high goals he allowed on Saturday. I like how Black Dog Hates Skunks put it

Devan will be awesome if we need him, but I think that this is good for JDD's confidence.

I'd actually wet my pants if Khabby isn't back by this weekend and we see Dubnyk get his first NHL start on Saturday.

me either. It would be great to see what DD has this year playing with the big boys. I don't think Khabi will suit up if he doesnt feel ready, and back injuries are funny things.

to be honest i think 1 more cellar yaer for the oil wouldnt be a bad thing and im not suggesting dd or jdd will allow that to happen but im not frustrated that khabi is injured thats forsure.....

obviously i wonna see the team do well but were not there so until then what can you do? hopefully khabby takes his time

You don't understand I followed DD through the WHL and was super excited when the Oil drafted him. In my opinion teh guy has been Springfields MVP last season and this season. Probably sharing MVP with Minard this season until he went down, but still.

This is a blessing in disguise. We need to know if JDD can play for real or not, and to do that you need to have more than 2 starts every 2-3 months.

If we go into a full tank ... so be it. That's not a bad thing either.

Oh I get that part, its just that you tend to sound a tad dramatic when you talk about your excitement about some things. It's adorable, don't get me wrong, just pretty funny too!

That's the issue with a message board. If we were talking face to face I wouldn't have to say "wetting" as you coudl tell with my facial expressions. But when it comes to typing you definitely have to be over dramatic.

Kevin Smith on the other hand whether face to face or on the net will tell it how it is.

I wouldn't panic and pick someone up as I agree this would be a good time to see if JDD has the goods to be a starting goalie.

This is finally JD's chance to play a string of games in a row and show what he has. I think the timing is perfect. If Habby is out for awhile, I'm sure all Oiler fans are curious to see how DD would do in a game or two as well. I say rest Habby and do not rush him, this is a good thing imo.

with an upcoming back-to-back I'd love to see Dubnyk get the start against the Canucks.

I agree, it would be nice for JD to get 4 of 5 games DD to get one, and Khabi to get a good rest so he is healthy when he returns.

Although the development of our younger goalies could be detrimental at this point.

JDD can handle fairly long stretches of play, but needs a fair bit of rest afterwards or his game gets out of sorts. I would be fine with a tandem of JDD and Dubnyk for a long stretch as long as the club plays more like their first 8 games of the year than how they've played since.
