Under 6.7 per year would result in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd picks next year which isn't terrible to give up, however the term has to be 5 years or less as if you signed him for 6 then the total contract is divided by 5 and is pushed into the next tier. The Rangers would have the hardest time getting under the cap to absorb the contract, but frankly, is Stepan worth it?
Personally, I believe Stepan is.
