And it's not really fair a solid comparison--Holik vs. Dubinsky. Dubinsky's contract covers two years of RFA years and two years of UFA years. Holik was a UFA signing back when the age was 31, and there was less UFAs on the market. Also I can't think of a similar contract given to a player like Holik in those days, so the contract was really an outlier.
Holiks numbers werent all that off from Dubis.

50-60 pt player

Dubi had 50 last season, the year before he was a mid 50's player if you do points per game (he missed a lot of time).

major difference being Holik played in the clutch and grab era, not sure how to normalize for that.
