Dubinksy Avoids Arbitration, Signs 4 Year Deal, $4.2M cap hit

According to Tim Wharnsby of CBC Sports:
Dubinsky avoids arbitration w/ NYR. Agrees to 4 yr deal, breakdown is as follows: $3.75M $3.75M $4.65M $4.65M.

This is great news for the Rangers, Dubinsky is locked up for another four years at a very manageable cap hit of $4.2M per year. Reports surfaced over the past few days that Dubinsky wanted in excess of $5M and that the Rangers were looking to pay less money. There were also rumors that Dubinsky wanted a long term deal and the Rangers didn't.

I have to point out that I did predict this week that despite reports to the contrary I fully expected Dubinsky to sign a long term deal  (4-5 years) with the Rangers and avoid arbitration.

Now that this contract is out of the way, I fully expect the Rangers to lock Ryan Callahan up with a deal of at least 4 years prior to his arbitration hearing next week.
Can I go 2 for 2?
