Consider these factors
• Dubinsky saw a significant rise in his +/- this season
• Both players had significant dips in scoring this season.
• Dubinsky played 77 games this season and last
• Anisimov played 82 games this season and last
• Anisimov logged several shifts on the first line this season, Dubinsky did not.
• Dubinsky is stellar on the PK
• 4 of Dubinsky's goals last season came on the PP. He rarely received PP time this season.
What I don't get is, how some people dog on Dubinsky so hard yet Anisimov seems to get a free pass. This isn't so much a dig at Ani, I like him and I think he's an important part of the team but it's pretty puzzling how Dubinsky gets **** on.
It wasn't just fans. Even he has made it clear he likes the kid —*Torts benched Dubinsky numerous times this season for poor play however in past seasons, unproductive stars with much more offensive talent than Dubi were given a free pass.
Dubi deserves more respect than has been given to him this season...
I like both players, but I dog Dubi more because I think he is the better offensive player and therefore should be contributing more.
Regardless of where AA was inserted, I do not think that he has the same capabilities as Dubi and therefore I do not expect him to be this consistent 50+ point scoring forward.
Dubinsky, however plays the game with enough skill and snarl to be ALOT better than he has been thus far this season.
For their career averages, I expect solid 2-way play from Double A with an average of 40 points a season. He has taken a step back from that this year, but not by much.
Dubinsky should be in that 45-50+ point per season range and has taken a significant step back in that regards. With Dubi I expect 20-25 goals and and 25-30 assists.
He's down 10+ goals and 4+ assists.
He gets crapped on more because more is expected.
To me, that's not a bad thing, that's a good thing.
