Not sure if serious. For your sake, I really hope not.

I also believe that getting snubbed of an 'A' really affected Dubinsky's psyche. Instead of getting it, it went to a new acquired FA in Richards. That had to have bothered him.

Well Eminger/Bickel would probably split time as the 6th dman and Dubinsky would assume his normal spot in the offensive rotation, I'd assume.

At this point, I think Gaboirk is more likely to sit then Kreider.

Torts: "The players dictate their ice time, so what he gets is what he deserves." (In reference to Kreider)

If that were the case then he wasnt worthy of the A, anyway.

He's proving Torts' point when he said that Dubinsky had some maturing to do last season.

Scratching Eminger playing wing is a start. Mitchell can easily be scratched for Boyle.

Dubinsky looked like a solid third liner towards the end of the Sens series, he was doing well on faceoffs, killing penalties, set up the Girardi goal, and doing what was asked of him. His lack of production offensively is disappointing, but I would rather have Boyle and Dubi come back, have Dubi centering a 4th line with Rupp and Anisimov than see Rupp-Mitchell-Eminger ever again.

Gaborik and MDZ were deemed done by many here, clearly they turned it around and it isn't like Dubi is old by any means. He may just be turning into a Vinny Prospal or Martin Rucinsky, a player who is hot one year awful the next, and so on. If that is the case Dubi is going to have a solid year next year or he will be traded over the summer.

I want him back for the playoffs, heal up and come back soon Dubi!
You arent going to compare Dubisnkys absence with callahans last year are you? thats would just be a very bad thing to try and debate.

You clearly did not read my post. I said you need DEPTH to make it far in the playoffs, we did not have any depth to replace injured players. Obviously no one was going to come in and do what Callahan did for last years team, but good teams have depth and players have to step it up.

Dubinsky was stepping up for Boyle while he was hurt, maybe not offensively, but he did a nice job on the faceoffs, the PK, and as a shutdown center.

Dubi made some big plays against OTT . Anyone thinking not having Dubi in a long PO run snake bit OFF or not is not much of a hockey fan

Guys are allowed to have bad seasons. That's all this is for Dubi. Nothing more, nothing less.

Tradable, yes but useful.

maybe you could start with sitting STEVE EMINGER...a DEFENSEMAN PLAYING THE WING

mitchell has been worthless in the post season. boyle and dubinsky back on this team gives you 4 SCARY lines.

His contract is bad this year based on his performance. If Miller comes in and out performs him, great we can trade him. But. well, until Miller shows up and does something. Dubi should be on the Rangers. The people who want to ship Dubi out are the same people who wanted to trade Gabby last year, trade DZ, and thought Grachev was going to be the second coming of Cam Neely. Dubinsky is having a down year. I get that. Last year he was the best player we had down the stretch and in the playoffs. He led the team in scoring. He played hard every shift. This year he has a new role. He has Hagelin and Richards who are ahead of him (now Kreider too) on the depth chart for offensive talent. So Dubinsky has slipped to the third line based on performance, but he isn't Wade Redden and he deserves a hard long look before he gets traded for the 3rd round pick he would likely bring coming back to us. We trade him and he gets a Gordie Howe hat trick every time we face his new team.

Dubi has made a lot of quality plays this post-season. If he's out for long we will miss him.

With the emergence of Kreider, the return of Hags from suspension... inserting Boyle and Dubi on the bottom 6 would be incredible.

Has it been reported what the exact injury is? Ankle? Knee? Or just the generic "lower body" injury.

I picture him walking down the street with his crutches, and some guy throws a huge garbage can down on its side about 2 feet from where Dubs is standing and says, "Hey bud, can i get

you to just knock that soda can into that overturned dumpster for me?" Duby hits the can with one of his crutches and it flies up and wide to the next yard. He hangs his head and continues on.

Dubinsky is a gritty player, he is doing the things he needs to do. Killing penalties

Sauer is coming back?

No. Whoever stated that in their post is sorely mistaken.

Dubinsky has grossly underperformed compared to his new contract. Doubtless about that. Yet he contributes a lot in other ways. I think he could be dealt, but otoh I am not sure that


Does he have
any value at all right now, might be a keeper after all for 3rd/4th line duty on a S C worthy team???

Yeah we definitely sit Kreider, who has been our best player the last 3 games.

Spaces are your friend....

Back on topic, i really am totally indifferent on moving Dubi. Ive always liked him and think he can bounce back, but even for a 2nd rd pick....i MIGHT pull the trigger considering our RFAs and maybe a big splash come free agent signing

Didn't even realize he was missing. Nor did I really miss him.
