I do agree his production is currently not up to his contract, but he is still a very important asset to the team.
I think the main reason he hasn't had more 40 goal seasons is because he spent his whole career with the defensive Wild. Put him on a team like the Caps for the last 3 seasons and he'd be close to putting up Ovechkin numbers.
Face palms aside, you seem to be saying that if we combine Dubi and Gaborik, the Rangers will be too able to defend. Most teams combine their best offensiove players but your approach seems to be different than the prevailing wisdom.
If you believe as a Cap he would have approached Ovechkin's numbers, then it is hard to take much of what you have written seriously. You are comparing a constantly-hurt, offensively gifted player with one one of the greatest offensive forces ever to lace them up. Get a grip.
