If you can get a good return, or if you need to clear space for an upgrade, there is no question that you should deal him. If he's not playing in a top-six role, and we have better, cheaper options in the bottom six, then where does he fit? He's been the same player here since he first got called up. Flashes of brilliance, but mostly he just leaves you wondering whether or not he played that night.
If he had been drafted by the Avalanche and we signed him as a Free Agent, people would be screaming for his head on a daily basis. The amount of slack he gets because he's "home grown" is borderline insane. 20 point drop after a huge pay day. Beaten out for a top-six LW role by a rookie. Lost his spot as a primary PKing forward. Sure, you could hang onto him and hope he rebounds, but what if he doesn't? His trade value is shot, and you're stuck with another $4M 3rd liner.
If you can find a legitimate top-six forward, and need to cut Dubinsky's salary in order to fit him, I have no problem dealing him.
