Evaluating the Evander Kane blockbuster trade, the Western Conference wild card race, advanced stats and 50-goal scorers in SI.com's NHL Roundtable.
I believe in Dubnyk, though. Last season’s disaster aside, he had a rock-solid stint with the defensively abysmal Oilers. In this post-Bryzgalov world there’s always some skepticism when a goalie leaves the Coyotes’ tight-checking system. But time in Arizona with goalie coach Sean Burke clearly did much to get Dubnyk’s career back on track. The biggest threat to Minnesota’s playoff chances at this point may not be its play, but the equally dangerous—and equally desperate—teams fighting with the Wild for the same playoff spot, namely the Kings and the Stars.
