DZ got 2 years/$5.1M. Stepan has 96 points in his first 2 years. The Rangers will look to hold the line with Stepan. He is not arbitration eligible. The Rangers will not have Wade Redden's $6.5M clogging up the summer cap. They will match any offer sheet.
I myself predict around $2,5M for Stepan, $2,0M for Hagelin & $4,3M for McDonaugh. The 1st 2 contracts will likely 2 year bridge contracts a la Sather - the 3rd one similar to Marc Staal (over 5 years). Will doubtlessly be interesting to follow... Now just drop the puck!
