Dubinsky did have a breakout year last season. I'm inclined to believe this year is more of a fluke than last season was, as his S% didn't jump last season to some ridiculous number, but this season it's dropped off the map.

Nash: GP G A PTS +/- PIM Hits Blkshots PPG PPA SHG SHA GWG SOG S%
2010-11 75 32 34 66 2 34 91 19 6 8 0 0 7 305 .105

2010-11 77 24 30 54 -3 100 141 31 4 7 2 2 2 202 .119

How is Dubinsky not half the player Nash is offensively? Do you think all those hits were in the defensive zone? Does him bringing offense to SH situations not count as offense?

Do you want to go into the line-ups that surrounded both players? The majority of that scoring came on a line with AA and Cally…. hardly the benefit of offensive wizardry or dynamos.

I honestly think that people clamoring for Nash are going to be bitterly disappointed at exactly what elevl of upgrade he is over Dubi offensively, and that his game as a whole is not an upgrade from Dubinsky at all.
