Dubinsky will be fine. The kid's a self-starter. He played well without Jagr, it's just that playing with Jagr accelerated his development. Anyone who thinks Dubinsky was just a product of Jagr didn't really watch the kid closely. He was better than anyone on this team not named Gomez of transitioning the puck from the defensive zone to the offensive zone. He used his size effectively. I think he has at least two more levels of development to go through. He's already shown a willingness to be a leader. I will continue to maintain that, when all is said and done, he will be this team's version of Rod Brind'Amour. He might not be the most skilled center in the lineup, but he very well may be the important one.
