I am in NO rush to trade Brandon Dubinsky. This Rick Nash fiasco was one of the few scenarios in which I would talk about maybe trading Dubi. (Getting a bonafide top 15 LW in return)

Brandon Dubinsky could repeat his statline from this year next year and we could still move him at the trade deadline if we wanted to. All we'd really be looking for in return is a salary dump and some decent picks/prospects. This is not a player who's career is on the verge of collapse, this is a player in an offensive slump who is still a tremendous contributor in many other ways. He has and will have value in the future.

But in all likelihood, IMO, there won't be a lot of Ranger fans talking about trading this guy after the postseason or maybe even before then. This guy is due. And I think he's gonna shake this slump.
