Kreider would not discuss his future last week. The Rangers haven't made him an offer yet so planning a return to BC is his only option right now. Stepan said he would return to Wisconsin but left the door open. The Rangers had not made him an offer so he was going to stay in school. When they made him the offer,he took it. You could make the comparison to Kreider's situation.
Stepan acknowledged that there's a possibility that things could change between now and the start of the 2010-11 season -- that he could play so well and the Rangers become so enamored that they push to sign him -- but he's locked onto one course of action.
"Right now, the plan is to stay and there hasn't been anything to even alter that plan at all,'' said Stepan, who's from Hastings, Minn. "I need another year, I feel like.
"I've got no problems here. I've got great facilities. I've got a great coaching staff. I've got a great stretch trainer. The WCHA is a powerful league. The best thing for my career would be to stay and that's the plan.''
