Stepan has an outside shot at getting on the roster as well.

Yeah, center depth isn't pretty. Still a long ways until the start of the season, though, and trades might happen. Though I do think the Rangers really want Stepan to impress and show he can be the playmaking center they want in the lineup. He could pan out to be similar to Gomez except without the great wheels but a better decision maker with the puck.

At any rate, I'm not sure why people say "Sather made a mistake in dumping the wrong contracts!" like he had an easy choice between Gomez, Drury, and Redden. I'd wager that there weren't any deals on the table for Drury and Redden like there were for Gomez. Sather dealt the player that he could, and got a pretty decent return for a guy who just severely underachieved the year before.

If the deal benefits both teams, so be it.
