He's just a terrific guy to have around, and while he's doesn't have Dubinsky's pure talent, I think he's less "replaceable" than Dubinsky. It's why the Columbus fans were shocked and distraught over his departure.

When we acquired Brandon Prust, most of our posters didn't think too much of it. We were just psyched to lose Kotalik and Higgins. Prust turned out to be the best player in the deal and a key piece of our success. I really believe that Dorsett, when he returns, can have a similar impact.
Yes I want him to be the missing link. Dubinsky was an alround stud who would play physical and bag a puck or two and he was homegrown. I think we need to be able to hang onto our own draft picks
