I think the blogger who suggests that the threat of an offer sheet may force a deal is spot on. Toronto wants Kessel. Of course, if I was Boston, I might just take Toronto's 1st 3 picks for Kessel. That number one could end up being a very high pick.

Burke would never lay an offer sheet on Sather.

One other possibility -- Drew Stafford is also an RFA. No love lost between Toronto and Buffalo. Threat is in play here also.

It's business.
NHL GM dealings are all about reputation/relationships, especially b/w the GM's who have been in the league a long time. No way this goes down.

HF overrates draft picks like nobody else. I dont know the exact percentages but its ~65% of first round picks play the amount of games that Dubinsky has played ALREADY. Dubinsky will never hurt us against the cap and fulfills a second line C role perfectly. I would only be interested if I knew it was a top 6-7 pick.

2nd, Right now theres not much there, but a few years down the line when Luke Schenn is an RFA...

It's a moot point anyways
1: Brandon Dubinsky

2: Burke will never leave the Leafs vulnerable to losing Luke Schenn. He's the centerpiece of the franchise.

1.We have the money to sign Dubinsky. He fully intends on being a Ranger, and has stated that he is not surprised the negotiations are taking this long, as the Ranger's roster overhaul left many issues to be worked out. There is no major rift according to Dubi, and he is happy to be a Ranger and ready to compete. (of course why wouldn't he say that)
2.Like he said, moot point... Also, i agree with previous posters about Dubinsky being worth more to this team than a 1st and 3rd, considering the overall crap-shoot reality of the draft, and Sather's less than stellar history. Dubi is a solid player, that has proven he will have a productive, if not awesome career.

If dubi was signed to an offer sheet that would bring back a 1 and a 3 I think I would take the picks reluctantly. I'd hate to lose dubi for picks but I just don't think his play would be worth the money and in a cap world can't over pay too much especially when there's already 5 big contracts on this team.

I really don't think we can even afford to have Dubi sign another offer sheet, even if it does bring back a first and change. Losing him does mean more cap space, sure, but who the hell do we sign as our first/second center with that money? I think there's more of an upside to him signing and providing a role for the Rangers than us getting something in return for him.
