I would be absolutely shocked if Dubinsky didn't score 20+ goals and 50+ points in the first full season with Columbus.
Even if he doesn't spend time on a line with them, he will still see improved numbers due to the fact that he won't be keyed on as a top offensive player. In Columbus, there are no elite level players ahead of him on the depth chart, and thus he will see more time against the Duncan Keiths, Ryan Suters, and Zdeno Charas of the league.
