You're a broken record, man. He was one of the only guys winning faceoffs. He was one of the only guys capable of getting the puck out of the Rangers' own zone (or didn't you notice that became a problem when he got hurt). He's been shooting the puck again, and Anderson had to stone him more than once this series.

Like I said, he's got a ways to go before he gets back to last year's model, but he's definitely moving in the right direction. Even if it were only "two important plays in a 7 game series" (and it's not), without those two plays, it likely isn't even a 7 game series.

Too many people (and you are one of the ones at the top of the list) refuse to give Dubinsky credit for anything because of his down season. If it were any other player who just played game 7 of a series on one leg, winning faceoffs and dishing the primary on the GWG, he would have hero status right now. If you actually see him as "useless" in the Ottawa series, then you need to step back and try to see past your own bias against the kid, because you're completely wrong.
