On the report out today that Dubinsky seeks $4.5M per year -- it didn't come from his camp.
...Brooks is more hit than miss on his rumors, so I'm not going to completely dismiss his report. Either way, Dubi's camp is smart to deny the report as most Rangers fans I've seen don't feel Dubinsky is worth that number.
Rick Carpinello at the Rangers Report adds that Rangers fans need to relax because all Dubinsky is doing is starting out the negotiations with the $4.5 million number. However, Carp does feel Dubinsky will end up with $4 million.
...man, I hope Carp is wrong here. Rangers need to get the number under $4 million. How's $3.75 million?
Staal is at $3,975,000 ... Callahan should probably get close to that or around 4, and I expect Dubi to wind up in that neighborhood too. I hope he doesn't push for too much. That's just not being a team player.
@AG_Blue Staal's contract increase though over the years. He hits 5 million in the last year.
@TomUrtzNYR , Hmmm... CapGeek has him at $3,975,000 through 2014-2015. So that's probably the cap hit each year while his actual salary goes up?
In any case, the point is Staal wears an "A" (and was an All-Star this past season). With Callahan as a projected candidate, it would seem he should make as much.
What about Dubi? He's obviously a team leader - most points. What kind of salary can he command?
