We expect those numbers to improve next season; Edmonton is likely to get significantly better as its young skaters mature. Devan Dubnyk is going to get the benefit of that improvement, as he should be the team's solid No. 1 netminder next season. (Updated 4/28/13).
04/21/2013 23:42 Ducks beat Oilers, on brink of clinching Pacific
Cam Fowler, Kyle Palmieri and Corey Perry scored to help put the Anaheim Ducks on the brink of clinching the Pacific Division with a 3-1 victory over the Edmonton Oilers in Sunday night.
Devan Dubnyk went 20-20-3 last season with Edmonton with a 2.67 GAA and 91.4 save percetnage, very respectable numbers for a team that had major holes on defense. The Oilers are getting better, especially on offense, but how much better their defense will be remains to be seen. As the defense goes, so goes Dubnyk -- for good and bad. There's also the looming shadow of Nikolai Khabibulin, who is nowhere near the goaltender he used to be, but will still see plenty of time between the pipes as the Oilers look to justify his contract. In a perfect world, Dubnyk would see 75 to 80 percent of the starts in goal, but that number could be closer to 60 percent with the Bulin Wall still in town. (Updated 8/14/12)
