Dubinsky had an issue because his agent wanted $4M per for a 2nd contract. Anisimov signed without much of a fuss last summer. Both of them were not eligible for arbitration. The Rangers gave Dubinsky the $4M contract for a 3rd contract after getting him for $1.85M cap for two years. Staal is the only Rangers to go from an expiring ELC to getting a deal which includes 1 year of group III. Schenn has the same deal as Staal. 5 years which includes a group III year. The Rangers sent DZ to the AHL to grow up and to serve as a wake up call. Torts always talks about DZ becoming a better pro. Preparing better on and off the ice. Giving DZ a big long term contract might go to his head. A shorter term deal puts pressure on him to perform. Two years.
