Is it any surprise that a guy produces less when he isn't playing with Joe Thornton? It's no secret that players like Thornton make everyone around them better - that's why they are superstar players. Pavelski is a well above average two-way forward in the NHL, and is at least equal to a guy like Brandon Dubinsky. Don't be surprised when Dubinsky produces less with the Jackets since, you know, he won't be on a team with Brad Richards or Marian Gaborik.
I'm pretty sure Dubinsky's numbers went down last season because he was on a team with Brad Richards. Gaborik has been there for 3 seasons but I don't know how much if at all they played together during that time.
