There's no doubt that Dubinsky would be a big asset to this team. Even without his offensive production, or lack thereof, we really missed his attitude on the ice last year. We have no one who can play quality minutes and is willing to get in the face of Crosby or, even though this specific player doesn't matter anymore, someone like Mike Richards.

Last season was a strange one for him, but the imbalance between his goals and assists is definitely what statistics people would call unsustainable. I think it's probably more valuable to say that he was producing the way he should, and things would even out in the end. In the Jackets game I watched that he played, he certainly looked more like his old self than he did in 11-12. Weird year. Injuries get magnified because of the shortened season. Let's see what happens this year.
