True, we'll get a better read of how he plays the next few weeks - but im hesitant to compare him to Dubi just yet. Anyone of those guys could move up if need be though, youre right.

SupersonicMonkey (great name btw) - I dont feel Dubinsky is being "wasted" on the third line. Did you feel that way about Drury last season?

I'm not disputing your ideas for the third line, they all could work - but I like the idea of spreading out the middle of the ice with Gomez-Drury and Dubinsky.

We may very well see a combination like any one of those later in the year if things dont work out. But i think that the third line of Fritsche-Dubi-Cally is going to get about the same minutes as the second line anyway.
