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.
This is where your coaching staff comes into play. Here you have a raw talent, similar to Mark in that respect also. The key is to harness that potental and channel it in the proper direction.
