McDonagh and Del Zotto are two guys that have high ceilings, and as such high potential RFA salaries as well.
I think its clear now that Anisimov is a 2b/3A center and will be, unless he somehow finds the consistency to score more than 45 points, he'll be affordable, as will Sauer, who is a #5. But they both will still get more than they make now if they stay status quo in development.
Let me put it this way. If a couple of our guys become stars and suddenly we need to clear a few million of cap space, in 2 years we can always trade Dubinsky for a pair of first rounders and/or high-end prospects.
Parise > Dubinsky.
Parise + a couple first rounders >>> Dubinsky
Honestly, if you were the Rangers GM and Lou called you today and offered you a signed Parise straight up Dubinsky, wouldn't you do it? Of course you would.
And here, if we sign Parise, then we will have at least another year of Dubinsky, and possibly we can keep Dubi forever and at worst, we still get picks/prospects for him.
