For example I negotiate contracts for a living and here is some simple guidelines we all follow throughout negotiations.

1) 10% rule. If the asking price for a service or in this case Dubi's service as a player to the Rangers is 4.5 mill that means that he is realistically shooting for a contract of 4.05 million.

2) Now from the Rangers perspective if they're goal is to get dubi for 3.8 mill their first offer would be 10% less of that at the 3.42 million range.

What this says to me is that Dubi's contract will be signed later in the summer rather than sooner leaving him vulnerable for an offer sheet if a team wishes to go that route.
