Man does Dubi remind me of Walter Tkaczuk The kid is going to be a 20-25 goal guy and never be bad in his own zone. I love how smart he has been with Jagr so far,

He really does make great plays, he does everything so well, I feel bad for the kid that the statistics just aren't there yet, but they aren't really there for anyone yet so, when it comes it comes.


DUBI!!!!!!

I said that a couple of weeks ago. I remember Walter when he first came up and Brandon is starting out the same way, a little tenative at first, got his feet planted, played well in his own end and the goals and assists wil come. He is a string, strong player that will only get better.

No offense, but can we wait for him to score a goal before we say he's going to score 20-25 of them in a season...

Why? We project NHL goal totals for kids still in Juniors. It's never been a problem before, has it? He looks like he has the skills and understanding to be a 20-25 goal scorer. Seriously, why is it wrong to predict that?

Projections are fine. I happen to be skeptical that he's going to be a 20-25 goal scorer. Especially since he's only scored more that 23 goals once in his career.

So then why not say that? Your original statement made it seem that Dag's prediction was unreasonable simply because Dubinsky had yet to score at the NHL level.

Not in those words, but the intent of the post appeared pretty clear.

I don't know why I even care, I don't like Dagoon . I guess the long hours in the field are taking their toll.

Either way, I'm just mincing words.

I think it's good for Duby's development that he's playing with Jagr. Duby is big and Jagr's style of play is based on puck control. Jagr can teach Duby how to use his body to protect the puck and to use it to make plays.

Playing with Jagr should help.

I would make the kid sit down and watch tape of the garbage goals that Adam Graves scored and tape of Messier in his last three seasons when he scored 90% of his goals from within 5 feet of the net.

Dubi looked great tonight. He needs to put a few in - as does almost every other guy on the team.

The kid is great, but just wait, Jagr said. Im not going to guarantee were going to score every game three goals. But the kid is playing great and I love to play with him. Hes more talented than a lot of people thought he is. They know hes taltented, but I think he shows a lot. Hes strong on the puck, hes not afraid to go to the net, good moves 1-on-1.
Dubi won't be headed back to Hartford any time soon.

I love watching this kid. He's definitely taking a few pointers from Jagr on how to control the puck with your body. He can stickhandle very well, pass, hit, you name it. It's just a matter of him living up to potential now

Dubinsky was my fav draft pick from the 04 draft after it happened along with Callahan. Considering we have Korpikoski and Byers most likely to make the NHL, not bad during the 04 draft.


Wow since we messed up the 03 draft, we made up for it during the 04. We got 2 NHL from the 04 draft, Callahan and Dubinsky, along with Byers and Korpikoski in the future most likely. 4 nhl players out of one draft is damn good to me.

Dubinsky was equally as complimentary. Should these two get a room?

I dont think people know that about him, how much he communicates with his linemates and his teammates, the rookie said. Weve had a constant conversation from the minute I was on his line. I felt more comfortable with him and I think I did some stuff to complement him better tonight.

it's great to see how much Jagr loves the kid and how they feel real comfortable with each other.. great person to have as a mentor Dubi..

Wow! I've rarely seen Jagr so high on someone, especially a young rookie!

Thats got to be huge for Dubinsky to hear that and like Jas said, he won't be going back to HFD anytime soon

Tkaczuk was possibly the strongest on his skates of any Ranger I ever saw. I remember someone once blindsiding him (I believe it was Espo) and Tkaczuk didn't move. The other fellow went flying.

The only thing missing from his game was that finisher's touch that is hard to come by.

Dubi is different, in my opinion. He has that unique ability to maintain control of the puck while deciding what to do with it. He shields the puck much like Jagr and Hossa which makes me think that they are probably not a good match as a line. You usually need diverse skills on a line in order for it to flourish.

I think he can do better then pick up garbage. He can be an elite C, not what Messier has became at his career twilight.
I know that for result oriented fans scoring is everything, but Dubi must be process oriented in this stage of his development.
Scoring does not excuse poor play otherwise. In fact doing other then scoring things well are by far more important than putting the puck in the net.
