Nah, Dubinsky had his sides for sure.

First of all; Dubinsky had a strong physical prescense and definitely was a core player in establishing the identity of this club. It's one thing to do what everyone else is doing, it's another to come in and set the bar. In that regard, I think Dubi sticks out in comparison with many.

Second; Dubi could rip the puck. He was hard to get a hold of for Ds. He was strong along the boards. But it seldomly came together.

I LOVE JT Miller, and think he will have an easier time than Dubi. But thats more like because he really fits the pro game and has that balance between ability, hockey IQ and position as opposed to necessary being heads and shoulders above Dubi. I think Dubi was just a tad bit too unbalanced, rough around the edges and so forth.
