80 points is not necessarily an elite player. Hell, the "Great White Spark" scored 73 points just 2 years ago playing with one elite linemate. Cheechoo scored 93 in 05-06 being fed by one of the best centers in the game. I NEVER said Dubinsky was elite.

Putting an arbitrary point value on "elite" players is laughable. You know an elite player when you see them, regardless of how many points they put up in a given year. I laid out my case as to why I think Dubinsky is capable of putting up 80 under certain circumstances. What he's done at other levels really doesn't matter to me. Power forwards generally are late bloomers anyway, so I don't see how it's even relevant.
I don't see Brandon Dubinsky as an "elite" power forward. I don't care who he plays with.
I think what you see is what you get. A 50-60 point player with nice grit, and the ability to play the wing or pivot.
