Do you realize that a second rounder has only about a 1 in 5 chance of becoming any kind of an NHLer? That's right: 80% of second rounders never make it. If Dubi was thought to be a future second liner, he'd have gone in the top-10.

The only way a potential top-6 slips into the second round is if he's high risk due to size, injury or attitude problem. Dubinsky had none of those problems. At the time he was drafted, nobody thought he was anything special. He was the last of the Rangers' four second rounders that year.
