With all due respect to some of the posters on this board thre is no way Stepan signs a two year bridge deal!! With everything he does for this team, he is worth more than that. I know the ROR deal was a bad deal for the whole league but it was a deal that got done and let's not be that stupid to think a player like Stepan would not get a better deal than 2.5 and two years. Stepan will get 3 to 3.5 per year for sure. He is second on the team in scoring, he is second in the plus minus category, he leads the forwards in TOI, and he has been our best center for the last 20 games. I also believe that fact that Stepan has not missed a game in his NHL career is going to come into play. With all this said, he gets more than Hags. I also think Hags has been really good this year and he is going to get paid to.

There is nothing Stepan has not done for this team in his first three years! IMO, because he is on the first PP, he is on the first Pk with Cally, he plays on the first 5 on 3 PP, and he is on the ice in the last minute of play tells me that he is more valueable than Hags. I think we are dreaming if we think he will only get 2.5 x 2 years. The Rangers have to trade Gabby or there is no way they sign Step, Hags, and Mac. All three of these guys are going to get paid or they are going elsewhere. This team has to find a way to free up some cash to sign these three young players. Just my thoughts.........
