Dubinsky is a leader and a face of this team.

He's been a top producer and leader in ice time for the last couple of seasons.

Just because he isn't politically correct and speaks his mind, doesn't mean he's immature like some here think.

Fact is Tortorella relies heavily on Dubinsky in every situation. Same as he does with Callahan and Staal.

Its their team. Along with Lundqvist, who isn't getting a letter for the simple fact he can't be skating to the officials' circle after a whistle.

As far as skaters go, Callahan, Staal, and Dubinsky are the face of this team.

Richards will have enough pressure on him as it is. He doesn't need a letter and added pressure. Let him play his game, lead quietly behind the scenes, and get Gaborik going, while focusing on performing on the ice.

Callahan, Staal, and Dubinsky have been here, proven themselves here, put their dues in, proven they can perform here, and are looked to as leaders.
