Just because he's not a flashy, 70pt player, doesn't mean he shouldn't be considered a 1st line talent.

But naw, Dubinsky is a 2nd liner. Just like Rick Nash is an elite 1st liner. Those 12 extra points put him 2 notches ahead of Dubinsky.
Are you honestly comparing Brandon Dubinsky to Rick Nash? A guy who hasn't scored 25 goals in a season ONCE, to a guy who has scored more than 30 goals SIX times and 40 or more goals twice.
