From Larry Brooks at the New York Post:
It’s the money.
If Brandon Dubinsky and the Rangers go to salary arbitration as scheduled tomorrow in Toronto, it will be a result of the parties’ failure to reach an agreement on a long-term deal covering five or six seasons, well-placed sources have told The Post.
Dubinsky, the 25-year-old winger, led the team in goals, assists and points last year (24-30-54) and ranks second in each category (44-54-98) behind Marian Gaborik (64-70-134) over the past two years. He is believed to be seeking in the neighborhood of $5 million to $5.25 million per year on a long-term deal while the Rangers are believed to be offering approximately $500,000 less per season.
