As it stands, with no deal in the works, they're not comparable to either.
One week ago,Dubinsky,Stafford and Kessel were group II free agents with no arbitration rights.Stafford signed a two year deal worth $3.8 million and Kessel signed a five year deal worth $27 million.Boston would have paid Kessel more than his QO in a 1 year deal.The Bruins wanted to give Kessel $3.5-$4 million in a multi-year deal.Dubinsky is still unsigned.Sather doesn't want to trade Dubinsky.In that comment Sather made about the group II deadline of DECEMBER 1,why would he make that comment?Sather has no plans to trade Dubinsky.He rejected overtures to getting involved with a three way deal involving Kessel.Sather has indicated to teams he would match an offer sheet.
