I can still see Dubi as a center with Drury moving to wing. If there's a player that can help mentor Dubinsky as a center it's going to be Drury in that they are both somewhat limited in their offensive talents, Chris can show Brandon the in's and out of keeping his feet moving and being in the right place at the right time.

Higgins - Prospal - Gaborik
Drury - Dubinsky - Kotalik
Avery - Anisimov - Callahan
Brash - Boyle - Lisin
Actually, when we still had Gomez, I liked the idea of Drury with Anisimov to take faceoffs and ensure defensive responsibility. If we go the route of Prospal centering Gaborik, which is worth examining if Dubinsky isn't cut out for it, then Drury with Anisimov makes more sense imo. In addition, Dubinsky and Cally showed some great chemistry.

Line 1: Higgins - Prospal - Gaborik
Line 2a: Avery - Dubinsky - Callahan
Line 2b: Drury - Anisimov - Kotalik (Drury would take faceoffs, but then play the role of LW)
Line 4: Brash - Boyle - Lisin

Anisimov with Drury and Kotalik also gives that line 2 shooters (Drury and Kotalik) and a playmaker.
