Plus, Petrovic gets an A++ and Dumba a B-? From watching the Rebels all year I don't agree with that. Dumba was easily just as strong as Petrovic from what I saw.
Agreed. Dumba and petrovic shared duties and played fairly equal minutes and at a fairly even level. I would say dumba slightly bigger impact offensively and Alex better defensively slightly.
As far as wingers flying by him a lot... Seriously? I didn't see it. The reason they couldnt win enough games down the stretch is they had like 10-18 injuries with some key guys out. Dumba's partner was out which was there number four and I think petrovics partner as well. I saw the other guys get beat a lot but they were stepping up big time in minutes and responsibility.
