As Dubinsky has grown,his game and his expectations have changed a bit. Now I see more of the potential for a poor man's Mark Messier. A guy who can generate offense but goes out there and can hit, throw an elbow and occassionally drop the gloves. I think if he gets himself into top shape he has a change to physically change a game with his added size now.
That's sort of why I wouldn't mind him getting a bit of a trial next to Shanny, just so he could learn at Shanny's bootstrap about being a professional hockey player.
