That package was never offered, at least not on the basis of any account that I've seen.
Actually, it looks like we were both wrong.
A bit of searching seems to suggest that the final offer was...
Columbus GM Scott Howson rejected what is believed a Rangers' final offer of Dubinsky, 21-year-old defenseman Tim Erixon, 2011 first-rounder J.T. Miller, 2010 second-rounder Christian Thomas and a first-round selection in this June's Entry Draft.
That's confirmed by both Brooks and Portzline (CBJ)
That's a lot of decent pieces--though some of them have huge question marks (I'm pretty sure my 10 year old cousin is bigger than Christian Thomas, and Erixon was the kid who basically forced his way out of Calgary and to the Rangers through the intervention of his father).
Meh. Maybe they won't get a better offer--but I'm pretty sure that the Rangers will cave and swap Erixon and Miller for MDZ.
If I was a Blue Jackets fan: Kreider would be a starting point, Dubinsky has to be in, the Rangers pick whichever "B" prospect they need least, and add the requisite 1st.
