50 point Dubi with the whole package is worth the contract.

Like Blueshirtblitz said above, a 50 pt Dubi along with his solid defensive/PK effort is worth the contract. If Dubi isn't scoring and just doing that, he's just a 3rd line grinder, someone we could have found for about half the amount. Cap space means everything especially in a hard cap sport. Again, I am happy with how Dubinsky has played lately, though.

He's got 21 points and he's been pretty down offensively. If he finished with 40+ year and shows up in the playoffs and this team wins, who cares? I still think he lives up to the contract. It's a four year deal. Not a 35 game deal. He's what, 25 years old? All the knocking him and always wanting to trade him stuff is insane.
