Derek Stepan will get 40 assists in the NHL next season.
Save this post, it'll make me look like Nostradamus by this time next year.
You could really see his smarts out there yesterday on the bigger surface with more time and space. Hopefully, the NHL game slows down for him a bit next year and he can translate that skill to the Rangers. If he can he'll be a great one, and 40 assists won't be out of the question at all (maybe not next year though).
Haha! If Norway stays out of the box anything is possible. Though I have to say I am pretty sure the US will strike back sooner or later. Fun to watch Norway nowadays though. Especially without Zucc, Thoresen and not least Vikingstad who retired from the national squad. Even their captain and veteran hung up the skates as a international after the olympics.
Even the goalie hero from the olympics is benched due to the back ups effort against Sweden!
Wow, what a saucer pass by Kreider on the Palmeri goal. Kid has all the tools. 2 on 2 rush, Kreider gets it past his defender and the defender in front of the next to hit Palmeri streaking towards the net. Although it hit Palmeri's skate, it was a beauty of pass and a goal Gabby would score 99% of the time
