I wouldn't need to "bank" on that to realize that Jagr on a 1 year deal at a reasonable price (imo 4 million or less) is still a no-brainer.
But for the record, their chemistry had little to do with Dubinsky playing center. It was simply the fact that Dubinsky is very good at playing a puck possession game, protecting the puck with his butt and playing catch with Jagr until something opens up or Jagr creates a chance with his size, strength, and reach. Size and reach don't go away with age. His strength is not what it was a few years ago, but he's still an ox and could still play a very sound possession game. While Jagr has diminished a bit, Dubinsky has only gotten stronger and smarter. I still see them having very good chemistry together.
