That I think is a fair projection.

As for lines, that's hard to project because I don't think it has the same meaning it did 20 or even 10 years ago. So much nowadays is based less on "ceiling" and more about balance and finding the right combinations.

Chris Drury isn't a "first line" player but he's there for chemistry reasons.

Having said that, I think Dubinsky could be a 30 goal, 70 point player. Though I don't know what line that will put him on.

His overall game has changed a lot since he was drafted. He was a kid I really liked as a 17 year old, but he's grown so much that his entire projection has changed.

When he was 5'11, 185 he reminded me more of Marc Savard at the same age. But at 6'1, 210 he reminds me of a poor man's Messier now.
