I see the same Dubinsky as last season, aside for confidence, and offense. There is no reason to suspect he won't overcome that.
Apparently, Tortorella saw a different Dubinsky, too. He got almost a minute less shorthanded time on ice this season, and it isn't as if that was to give him a break because he was getting more minutes elsewhere. His minutes overall went way down.

So even on the one thing that he's supposedly consistent at, playing defense and killing penalties, the coach was not impressed. And I agree, I thought even his defensive play suffered this year. He was invisible offensively most nights, but there were a number of nights where he was invisible in general.
