I like Dubie as much as the next guy. But if Ricky is at 95-98% is there really anyone who believes that Wade at 100% is a better option than Ricky?

i dont ever think dubie is better than ricky but he is a good backup. however, we dont need to risk a 14yr contract (thats left) over 1 week of play or 1 game of play.

I think DP is played too much with or without the injury. I think Dubie is MUCH better as he gets mor playing time and DP could use a little more rest over the long term. Both of these guys could be better if Dubie played somewhat more regularly.

So true. Dubie is the best goaltender in the history of the National Hockey League. So why not rest DP the entire season!

Yeah, that dumb contract runs until DP is 89 years old. But Dubie is better than DP, in fact Dubie is the finest goaltender ever! Open your eyes, man!

Dubie will not let us down. He is automatic.
