Good luck with Dubs. I never really liked him. He is just slow. I personally think the new rules (smaller pads, smaller nets) just did him in this year. That being said he is a NHL goalie, just don't expect a starter.
I'm not down on him. He is a 4th liner. What he provides is defensively responsible play with a willingness to stick up for his teammates and the ability to chip in a few (quite literally) points at even strength. He isn't a prolific scorer or setup guy.

My only problem with him was his contract length and cost ... simply too much money for too long on a 4th liner who isn't going to lead the league in any category nor is he going to fill roles on higher lines for prolonged periods of time.
