Acquired in the Rick Nash deal by Howson, Dubinsky hasn't been a liability he just makes too much money and Kekalainen doesn't have any ties to the deal
Yes please. Dubinsky is the kind of guy I'd love to get. Above 50% on face-offs, good for 200+ hits in a normal season, a top PK guy and is competent to get things done in a Top-6 role, whether that be riding shotgun on LW or centering any permutation of kids.
The only concerning thing to me is that he's got 1 year left on his contract till he's a UFA. Being from Anchorage, is the proximity a helpful factor in re-signing him? He'll be used to the weather
EDIT: NM, 2 more years left on his deal. Love it.
