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.
Nice post. What are the rules regarding compensation for signing an RFA to an offer sheet? I want to say its based on salary but I don't have any idea. Hypothetically, if a team signed Dubi to an offer sheet at 4.5 for 4/5 years what would that entail in terms of compensation picks?
