The Good: Above all, Dubnyk possesses the one great talent no coach can teach: size. At 6’6 Dubnyk gives very little of the net up to opposition shooters with his hulking size. He’s gangly and plays a stand-up style with patience and an economy of motion, allowing the puck to come to him.  He plays with a lot of confidence, and stays calm under pressure. Endurance shouldn’t be a concern, extra weight lifting and cardiovascular work has increased his fitness.Very strong positioning and great rebound control are two other strong characteristics of Dubnyk’s play in the net. He has a great attitude and is well liked in the locker room. He’s still young (25), and the Oilers have a lot of young talent up front, so its only a matter of time until Dubnyk gets to show his true worth. He is very underrated, playing on some pretty awful teams during his pro career.

The Bad: He has played on some really bad teams, which doesn’t help his stats. Some scouts called him the best goalie with the worst record in the AHL. So far after 3 seasons with the Oilers, he has yet to have a winning record, which doesn’t help his trade value.. His rebound control and ability to read plays needs some work, but this can be fixed with practice. He still lacks the game-to-game consistency required to become a quality starter at the National Hockey League level. He has yet to play a playoff game in the NHL or AHL.
