I don't really get the imperative--we have to get rid of Dubinsky now! logic here. He's a big, young, well rounded player. He goes through scoring droughts but so what--practically everyone else does too--even Gaborik was pretty much shut down towards the end of the year. Drury goes goal less sometimes for 15-20 games at a clip. Is Callahan scoring all the time? Or Prospal? For $1.8 mil Dubinsky should be a bargain this year.

On the subject of Zherdev--more creative? Sure. Also a soft player. Nowhere to be found in the playoffs a couple years ago.

As for Richards--beyond the cap hit is a guy who will be UFA next year. It would take a lot more than Dubinsky to get him if only to even out the money so we could be cap compliant and next year we could lose Richards besides. It's just not realistic.
