I think he's a good player, i'm just not gonzo over him like some are.

I can't use pts exlusively for Dubinsky, but you can for Prospal? Funny how that works. He didn't/couldn't play a full season the year before. He's on the verge of breaking down completely. He did virutally nothing in the playoffs.
If you don't think Dubinsky's 50 points is enough to be considered a top 6 forward, then by your standards, the NHL only has 89 top 6 forwards in total. Add in the extra things that Dubinsky does as a player - Physical presence, defensive awareness - I just don't see how he's an 'ideal' third line player.
