Dubinsky is a good 2nd line center. Nothing more than that.
On no contending team is Brandon Dubinsky even a bad second line center. Period. Every last playoff team last year had two centers better than him. He's a nice player, but if he's your second line center, you're not winning anything. His impact is greatest as a hard-nosed third line center, and the Pens don't need to spend assets on that for clear reasons.
