Unless you think his physical play makes up for roughly half the point production, Dubinsky isn't even remotely comparable to Wheeler. That's a complete whiff of a comparison IMO.
Might surprise you, but did you know that Wheeler has almost identical point production to Rick Nash over the last two seasons? To be clear, I'm not saying Wheels is as good a player, obviously you have to take into account the context in which Nash produced those points. Still, it feels like so many people aren't appreciating Wheeler's skill. I love Ladd's grit and finishing skills, but Wheeler really is the straw that stirs the drink on the Jets first line.
