I was a big Dubinsky fan, don't get me wrong. His offensive game has slipped since two years ago though, and he seems to float too much for a guy that should be playing an agitating brand of hockey. I miss him, but I think a lot of us overvalue him to varying degrees because of the homegrown factor.

Last year, I argued that his low goal total was likely a product of bad luck. An abnormally low shooting percentage for him. This season--albeit in a small sample--the issue remains. Maybe there's something fundamentally off about his game? I don't know. I don't see him as a banging, 50+ point player anymore. Hope I'm wrong...as I said, I loved the guy.
