Dubinsky Holdout Comes to an End

New York reporter Andy Gross confirms that the Rangers and Brandon Dubinsky have agreed on a two-year deal worth $3.7M. The deal is deemed as fair, but slightly in favor of the Rangers as Dubinsky could have an increase in points, and if so he will not have the chance to represent his case for two full seasons to an arbitrator.

Zherdev Awarded $3.9M

According to Steve Zipay from Newsday, Rangers forward has been awarded $3.9M by the arbitrator. This increases the possibility that Zherdev may remain with the Rangers as he sought a $4.5M per season contract.

My thoughts on the trades and other related issues.
