Dubinsky is a 2nd liner having a down season on the score sheet. He's not a 3rd liner. Also, please read what it was that I actually wrote--Dubinsky brings a complete game--he's a top PKer on one of the league's top PK units, he hits, he defends his teammates, he elevates his game in the post-season, and he's a huge part of the locker room. On top of that, he's reliable for 40 (minimum) to 60 (maximum imo) points per season. To me, getting an additional ~20-25 points from a guy like Nash isn't worth giving up all of the other stuff that Dubinsky brings (to say nothing of the contract disparity). I wouldn't hesitate to trade him if it made the team better in both the short and long term. I just don't think he's "easily replaceable" like some folks have said in this thread.
