He's got a good point about the possession stats, but all it really takes is getting into the playoffs and getting hot at the right time, which is kind of his point at the end.  I say they're contenders until proven otherwise.

Caveat: I have not read the article.

 

When they talk about regression, they usually mean PDO. What PDO doesn't take into account is a goalie playing out of his gourd like Duby is. To that end, I think he's saying he doesn't believe Duby can sustain this pace. 

 

I disagree. 

I'm a Wild hockey fan.
