I think that's selling Dubi short. He's a solid centerman, good a FOs, and a power forward. Those are a skills that have nothing to do with Jagr. What Jagr (or another skilled winger) brings to Dubi's game is a finisher, and a focal point for the opponent's defense. Dubi earned his original spot on the top line due to his hard work, and was asked back there by Jagr, because Jagr could tutor him on being Jagr's center. But Jagr didn't give him those tools, he merely helped hone them, and there's no reason they should disappear overnight.
