So many who act like his $4.2 million contract is equivalent to the dozens and dozens and dozens of mercenaries we've brought in over the years who have stolen money from this organization and weren't close to the type of player Dubinsky is. It's pretty embarrassing. Those people will always talk about consistency, as if every player who isn't elite doesn't struggle with that. It's always interesting to me how selective people are with things. So many times when Dubi takes a penalty people will act like he's the dumbest player in the league who has his head up his ass. Yet Cally will take the same types of penalties and it's because he tries so hard. I just will never understand the hate that Dubi has received dating back to him missing sprints in training camp two years. Since that point its been criticism at every opportunity and include him in every trade possible. Dubinsky is a gamer and not even in his prime yet. He is part of the core and it would be nice if people really started to appreciate him and accept that.
These are like the multitude of posters who want to trade Girardi for some hyped up name they read about a lot on the main board. Since I don't get MSG here and end watching whatever NHL game is on, I see a lot more of the league than most. A lot of top dmen are significantly worse than Girardi just like a significant number of top 6 wings are much worse than Dubinsky, especially when it comes to playing physical and on both ends of the rink. I don't know whether it's the desire to build a fantasy league type of team or whether some people just don't see enough of other teams to know how good some of our players are...
