BUZZ: Brandon Dubinsky Is Likely Headed To Arbitration

Update: 1:58PM:

Jesse Spector says that the hold up is the length of the contract and that Dubinsky wants a longer term deal.

Original Post:

Larry Brooks tweets that unless there is a “dramatic shift” the Rangers and Brandon Dubinsky will go to arbitration on Thursday because they aren’t close enough on a long-term deal.

Brooks does say that talks are continuing with Ryan Callahan. Callahan’s arbitration case is set for next Thursday.

The Rangers can elect a two-year arbitration award on Dubinsky.

This isn’t going to be good for anyone.
