Dubinsky can create space for them, adds some size and grit, is good along the boards and in the corners and has plenty good skill to play with them. I would think that after a year, Kreider could step in and play in that role, so Dubi would only have to be a stop gap anyhow. Even as a rookie, playing with that kind of talent should allow Kreider to play on the 1st line and not be in danger of failing expectations and even if he doesn't perform as we'd hope, Dubinsky can always be moved back up. Frankly, I think Dubinsky would perform really well on Richards wing.
I would just focus on acquiring Richards; I don't think we need to outside the system to fill his wings.
I can see Dubinsky excelling with Richards centering (then again who wouldn't). With that said I personally don't think of Dubinsky as a first liner so I'd rather have someone a little more talented on the first line. It's weird, but I want first liners on the first line
. We certainly wouldn't suffer with Dubinsky there if we didn't have other options though.
