So don't knock a poster by calling him someone that recognizes Dubi's worth because in fact you're saying that poster would know more than you.
Dubi is stronger on the puck. However, the comments about his creativity and playmaking skills are a joke. Dubi is a staight ahead, grinding player who can keep the puck. But, his ability to make plays for himself and others is what holds him back. He and Brian Boyle due to their size and strength and ability to shield the puck find themselves in great positions to create scoring chances. The problem is too often they squander that opportunity. Dubi is more creative than Boyle. Heck, I'm more creative than Boyle. But creativity and the inability to see the ice and anticipate where the holes will be is what holds Dubi back. One on one with the puck on his stick he is great at keeping possession. But taking the next step? Not so much.
If Step or Zucc had either the size or the strength of either of these guys they would put up 80 points easy.
And to knock anything about Cally's game is silly. He is our best all around forward; no question about it.
