That's all true but Dubinsky has shown well in both playoff series he's been in. He's been one of our better players both times.
From my own point of view as a Ranger fan Pavelski isn't enough for Staal at all and it would wreck our defense. You--as a Devils fan surely recognize that. Staal is never going to be a big point producer but he is a rock on defense already and he's good enough offensively where you can't take him for granted. He is the guy that gets the Ovechkin, Malkin and Crosby assignments as much as possible. Now this McDonagh kid may be able to take some of the load off that in the future but got to see how quickly he gets up to speed. For now for us having a decent defense group Staal is almost irreplaceable.
