This is the first I've heard of anyone thinking Dubi and Staal are underrated.

Staal has #1 d-man written all over him. Once he fills out, you're going to see the kid let his mean streak out and start flattening people. He has a ton of untapped offensive potential as well. He is definitely the core of our blue line.

Dubinsky is a very good young forward. He's shown flashes of absolute brilliance where I thought I was looking at Vinny Lecavalier out there. I definitely think he'll be a steady 25-30g / 40A player when he settles in.

Dawes, on the other hand, I'm not so sure about. He's skilled, but I just don't see that NHL confidence in him that I see with Staal and Dubinsky. He's small, but he doesn't have that breakaway speed that he should. He might have a breakout season, but I'm not sure he's going to be a 30 goal scorer like everyone claims he will.
