Of course you are.

I'm not for one second arguing that Ryan isn't significantly better than Dubi, but it was AMAZING how easily people were willing to overlook the same problems with Ryan that they vilify Dubinsky over. Contract hold-out? Check. Slow start to the year? Check. Somehow, with Ryan it was "he's just in a slump, look what he's done before! ZOMG." With Dubinsky, it's "I don't give a **** what he's done before. These 20 games are all he is!!!"

Dubinsky is on this team. He's playing well in every area but one (shooting/scoring goals). He's compensating for that slump by improving his assist numbers by 20% over his previous season high (on pace for 40+ assists). I will never understand why some people in this fan-base have some perverse psychological need to viscerally HATE at least one of our own players every year.
