He was effective how? Because you say so?

I liked Dubinsky. It is pretty safe to say 95% of the fan base did/does. But he is highly overrated and overpaid. He demanded his raise and Sather gave it to him. Then he went out and played like a 3rd line player even though he's being paid like a 2nd liner. The guy works his tail off, he goes into the corner, goes to the front of the net, takes the body, plays a grind it out game. The game is not all about scoring but at the end of it the team with more goals wins, and he is getting paid as such to do so. All that cyclining in the corners can only go so far. Enough was enough. The team needed another threat besides gaborik that they know can step on the ice, skate the puck into the zone himself, and score rather than constantly dump and chase to try and wear the other team down because were the better conditioned team. Well over time when thats your go to game plan it wears your own team down. In the playoffs teams tighten up their defense. The Devils, Caps, and Sens all did. After the 1st line it was a very dump and chase team. Dubinsky was more of the same and was inconsistent.
