While I agree with the principle of spreading the scoring, I don't think the answer is to pair our two best wingers with Dubinsky. Giving our two best centers (and yes, I still consider Drury "better" than Dubi) youngin's to play with does not make organizational or even financial sense.
The best-case scenario right now is to pair one of Nas/Z with one of Gomer/Dru and work from there. In my opinion, Nazzy is the better playmaker of the two wingers, so would likely be more functional with Drury, whereas Zherdev is more of a finisher and
mesh with Gomez.
Dubinsky is still progressing, and were it not for an 800 lb. gorilla requiring certain concessions in line-ups he would be viewed as a great home-grown replacement for Cullen.
Over the next couple of seasons, the choice will get harder as Dubi gets better, but as of now if anyone is going to shift positions to get him "top six minutes," it's Brandon himself.
