Rangers screwed this up, they should have bought out Richards signed Stepan long term and gone into the season with Brassard, Stepan, Moore, Boyle, Miller and Lindberg as their centers.
Blaming it on Stepan is weak, pretty much every other team in the league would have signed their version of Stepan especially after the season he had last year, shortened or not. In fact pretty much every team did sign their non arbitration eligible versions even if they feel they overpaid some. Hodgson, Kadri, Henrique and none of them have as much NHL experience as Stepan.
Hockey is different here.
