Roman Horak's WHL season is over. They lost game 5 to Spokane. Series over.

Regarding Kreider,the Rangers did not make Stepan an offer until late May. They didn't contact McDonagh's camp until late April-early May which was after the Rangers had their organization meetings at Sather's mansion in La Quinta.

Stepan made these comments on June 9

“It surprised me,” Stepan said Wednesday of the decision. “I told (Eaves) that my world got flipped upside-down a couple weeks ago.”

That’s when the Rangers, who chose Stepan in the second round of the NHL Entry Draft in 2008, began aggressively pursuing him.

“It’s something where I felt bad and it was a tough decision,” Stepan said, noting that he’s gotten little sleep the last 10 days weighing his options, “but it in the end it was the best thing for me.”

Stepan like Kreider had an injury. Stepan suffered a concussion in the loss to BC. Kreider admitted on twitter his jaw is not 100%. Can't eat solid foods.

@SLUHBNYC : The jaw is getting a lot better thankfully! Still can not chew though. I'm living off spaghettios and macaroni haha.

We need to have Kreider hang out with Lundqvist who loves pasta. Not the canned stuff Kreider is eating. Henrik knows all of the good pasta joints in NY.

Looks like Kreider met up with Rangers draft pick Danny Hobbs
