READ: Brandon Dubinsky Doesn’t Need A Letter To Be A Leader

“I think everyone who is around me and knows me knows that I will be the same guy with or without (a letter). I will voice my opinions, I will be loud, I will be emotional, and I’m going to keep bringing that same effort I do every day.”

Brandon Dubinsky to Blueshirts United

That is good because I am not so sure that he will get a letter this season with Brad Richards likely taking the “A” that Ryan Callahan will leave behind when he gets the “C” on his jersey. It doesn’t matter though as long as Dubinsky continues to play his game, be vocal, and lead by example. He is already a leader in the locker room and doesn’t need a letter to reinforce that.

Dubinsky’s arbitration hearing is scheduled for this Thursday.
