IMO, Dubinsky and his agent overvalued his abilities. He meant a lot to the team in terms of what he brought overall, but once he broke 50p for the first time, held out of camp to get his $ he was never the same player. He's an excellent 3rd line player that can check and score some, but the pressure of being a consistent 2nd line scorer/producer was too much for him. He flat out stunk his last year with us, and he's not fairing too much better now. It's kind of Ironic that he wound up player with his slightly better twin, R.J. Umberger.

Dubinsky @ 2.5-3M is fine, @4M+ is ridiculous.
