About Dubinsky on LTIR

In speaking with the blog Emperor earlier this afternoon, our fearless leader posed the following question to me:

What I want to know is how could the rangers put Brandon Dubinsky on LTIR? I know that it was basically done to save them cap room, but I also know the league has to approve LTIR status.  They must have pulled some string.

I put on my reporter’s cap and decided to reach out to Andrew Gross of Ranger Rants and The Republic. Gross responded with the following:

Don’t think there were any strings involved. Simple roster maneuver, really, at least as it was explained to me. Not sure if there’s a certain length of injury component but Dubinsky does qualify under LTIR guidelines. Rangers needed cap flexibility in the here and now so the move was made retroactively.

Thanks for clearing that up, Andrew!
