Screw it, give him 5.5 for 7 or 8 years. Overpayment? Maybe, but we can't afford to lose him anytime soon. With the salary cap going up, I give him a contract like that in a heartbeat. But that's just my opinion though, I'd probably be a ****** GM
Woo....I don't have a problem with longer/more years but I hope the Cap hit is more like 4-4.5 M. and give us options to trade him down the road(even though as of TODAY I hope he retires a Ranger!)
5.5-4.75-4.25-3.75-3.5-3.5=4.2M Cap Hit
with Incentive clauses for Allstar/Stanley Cup Finals appearance to renegotiate.
I think the Rangers will go to arbitration with Dubinsky and then based on that Sign Callahan.
