If we choose between keeping Dubinsky or Zherdev, the choice is easy, even if I am disappointed at Dubi as well last season.
While not a huge Kotalik fan, I'm not sure you are giving him enough credit.

Kotalik has played in 92% of his teams games post lockout.

Additionally, he has been the model of consistency aside from the monster season he had in Buffalo. He's averaged .56 points a game over the last three years. His shortest season he was on pace for 47 points.

Again, not a big Kotalik fan, but you can pretty much pencil him in for 20/20. If he can recapture any magic from his days playing next to Drury, maybe those numbes get pushed to 25/25
