Tyler Bunz Signs Entry Level Deal With Edmonton

Posted: March 19, 2012 by Steven Ellis in Edmonton Oilers

(Jeff Bassett, QMI Agency).

The Edmonton Oilers announced today via their official Twitter feed that they had signed Tyler Bunz to a three year entry level contract.

Since being drafted late in the 2010 draft, the Medicine Hat Tigers netminder has established himself as one of the best puck stoppers in the WHL.  He boasts a 74-30-13 record over the last two regular seasons, and has a 921 SV% this year after posting a 919 SV% last year.

It’s expected that Bunz will follow in the path of Jeff Deslauriers, Devan Dubnyk and Olivier Roy have been on and start his professional career in the ECHL as a starter with the Stockton Thunder. David Lenevu and Yann Danis have led the Oklahoma City Barons to the top of the AHL standings, and Roy is expected to play for OKC next season after a strong year with the Thunder. (more…)

Yann Danis

Posted: February 23, 2012 by Steven Ellis in Edmonton Oilers

The Good: Danis, an experienced AHL veteran, is a cool customer under pressure. He plays a steady, mature game between the pipes. Usually lets the puck hit him and is rarely out of position. Danis has good lateral movement and takes up a lot of space in net. He is usually tough to beat down low and has very quick reflexes. His biggest asset is his work ethic, as he was a workhorse in net for lower level teams. danis, along with David Lenevu, provide a very reliable goaltending duo, while prospect Olivier Roy develops in the ECHL.  He has the ability to be an NHL backup goaltender.

The Bad: There isn’t anything great about his play style. Danis is a little undersized and doesn’t have great lateral mobility. He needs to show he can consistently string together quality starts at the big-league level. Nothing more than a depth goalie. (more…)

Devan Dubnyk

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. (more…)

Nikolai Khabibulin

The Good:  Khabibulin is a savvy veteran and a clutch performer. He can play an electrifying, acrobatic style that leaves fans on the edge of their seat. He has the ability to win games by himself, something he has been able to do on every single team he has played for. Nobody thought Khabibulin would be one of the top goalies through October, mainly because he was so brutal last year, then spent time in jail over the summer. But when a goalie shows a true desire to prove his worth and fulfill his contract, as long as he’s healthy and focused, he’s primed to succeed. The Bulin Wall has had some cracks in recent years, but for the most part has been a very reliable goaltender. Edmonton fans might not agree, but when the entire team struggles, you can’t blame him. Big part of the 2004 Stanley Cup winning Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Bad: His unpredictable style makes him vulnerable against teams that go to the net consistently, such as Detroit.  One of his major weaknesses’ is his difficulty with rebounds. He lets the puck hit him too much, letting the puck go straight to an opposing player. He also struggles handling the puck behind the net and don’t expect him to make any amazing passes. He has struggled to win games on a weak team.
