Dubinsky's a 40 point guy who can kill penalties; dime a dozen type player.
I don't put much stock in draft picks, especially if it's a pick outside the top 5. There are only a couple 'sure things' in most drafts; the rest of the draft class is pretty much a crap shoot.
Dubinsky's the epitome of a third liner. As far as depth forwards and bottom six guys go he's near the top of the list. So I can see why you would call him a dime a dozen, but I don't really see it that way personally.
Hasn't it been proven that the majority of successful draft picks come in the first two rounds?
I wouldn't say infinitely. Timonen's a year older and all we did was exchange Carle for Schenn (a lateral move at best considering Schenn's really down season and his low offensive output), restart with a healthy Grossmann (God knows if he'll be healthy come playoff time) and Meszaros instead of Lilja. Having a healthy Grossmann, for now, is nice all as well as adding Meszaros, but I wouldn't call that infinitely better considering Timonen's aging and the Carle-Schenn exchange.
I think the big concerns are that our only number one d-man is aging a lot, we have no real offensive force on the defensive side of things except from maybe Timonen who is far from elite offensively, and we have no high quality prospects in the pipeline to replace Timonen and anyone we lose via free agency (like we did with Carle). Weber fixes all those problems.
