    Couldn’t find a PD-thread on him, and now that he just won AHL - Goalie Of The Year i think he deserves one.

    Would he be healthy enough to play this summer if there is a playoff?

    Russo did speculate in one of his articles the past few weeks that he could be with the team if play resumes, wasn't certain, but "could be".

    Basically confirmed with today's announcement that teams will be able to carry "unlimited" goalies. I would not be shocked if we see him start. In fact, I actively hope we do. He should get the start against Vancouver.

    If Kahkonen is allowed to play then there's really no reason to even bring Dubnyk along. Let him stay home and worry by himself.

    He was in piss poor shape during the season I can only imagine how much he's ballooned up during this quarantine.

    You mean to say that an already shaky goalie that doesn't want to be there isn't recipe for success?

    But he makes up for it by being very unathletic and refusing to take responsibility for anything.

    At the risk of making myself look like an idiot, I have to say that I don't get this reference. I know it cheapens it to have to explain it, but... explain?

    That's the name of the AHL Vezina.

    I can't imagine a professional organization that has goalie struggles and potential to be in the playoffs didnt tell him to keep in shape and be ready to potentially be active for playoffs...

    Edit: unless of course you meant dubnyk and even then my point remains.

    If the team has to tell the player to stay in shape, it's already over.

    Maybe Dubnyk went on a soul searching adventure?

    I have to wonder why the Wild goalies keep hitting a wall. It's like they are good and then suddenly they aren't. I don't know if this happens to other teams...but it's like a flame. Burns bright and then goes out.

    We need to remember that Dubnyk was dealing with his wife's illness as well and that may have been a contributing factor in his sub par play. I think he was trending downwards anyways, but I'm sure the off ice stuff just accelerated it a bit.
