None of us would accept a lowball offer to do whatever it is we do for a living, just for the sake of not rocking the boat. I don't think it's fair to expect that from our players either. Sure, I don't like it because it hurts my team, but who am I to tell another person "Sit down, shut up, and take what we're gracious enough to give you."
You don't want to out price yourself either.
Of course you wouldn't want to be low balled, but when your dealing with Restricted Free Agency its different. RFA DO NOT have the negotiating rights of UFA. Dubinsky wasn't dealing from a position of strength.
I love Dubi too, but lets be honest and really think about the situation at the time.
