If they had planned to give him a long term deal, they would have left themselves more cap space.
Like I said, if you disagree with the decision to give him a bridge contract rather than a long term deal, that's fine. But that decision was made months ago. It has nothing to do with how much cap space they have left.
No, I am insisting that the Rangers should have left space for a long term deal for Stepan.
The other moves they made, whether this off-season or in off-season's past as well as next year's off-season are the cause of them only offering a 2 year deal because that is what crafted this finely tuned plan of theirs.
