This seems like a ridiculous comparison to me, but due to a recent debate with a "Flyers fan" on the Rangers board, apparently these two guys are closer in value than I would have guessed.

D-sive mistakes your team makes including Dubinsky are outrageous. If not for Henrik NYR would be fighting for 8th spot.
Keep in mind your team was/is relatively healthy all season long…
Downies time will come.
Kaktus is implying that due to Dubinsky's recent slump, Downie could easily match his points production. He is also making excuses for why Downie can't crack the lineups of the Flyers (patience?) or the lowly Lightning. He also questions Dubinsky's defensive game, which I guess is brought up because he feels Downie's is far superior. So, HFBoards, who would you rather have on your team?
