I've liked that we're seeing many facets of his game improve. His faceoff percentage has increased since last year...he seems much more effective on the boards and maybe it's just because he always seems to be in the right place but I think his skating has improved a bit too.

He's really doing all the things right and he's getting rewarded for it. He's really excelled in all situations. Good for him.

The biggest difference is that Stepan is now driving the play, actively making plays, forechecking alot better. Earlier, it looked like he was observing the play, waiting for his turn with the puck. He's making a ton of moves.

He's been great for the past month. So calm with the puck and you can see how much confidence has has with it. Can't believe he's still only 22 years old, he's only going to get better over the next couple years. He will be running the PP in the next year or so.

Stepan has been so fun to watch this year it is crazy! There is nothing this kid does not do for this team!! Get rid of Beaver and give Step the money he deserves! Just a FYI, if his agents are like the rest of them there is no way we get him for 2.5 million a year! He is way to important to this team!! Hall, Eberle, Ekman Larson, O'Reilly all getting 6 million per year. This is a case where the Rangers are going to have to belly up to the bar and get this kid signed for a fair price!!

This half season is ********. Off season big changes were made,well minor but its become major. Richards will be fine next year,IMO. I still like the guy.

Stepan while inconsistent is looking very good this year and he is still a baby. Kids stepped it up his year and IMO this year was do or die for him.

A PP goal, a beauty by Stepan in the SO, and a spectacular 5-on-3 PK. He's playing A LOT better than Richards too. It's pretty insane how he's somehow the #1 center over Stepan

Take the A away from Richards and give it to Stepan! He's been our most efficient forward this year.

He's becoming a 1st line center before our eyes.

Can't believe people were running him out of town earlier in the season. Just shows how patient our fanbase is.

Need to get Nash back with him pronto. I'm tired of watching him paired with Cally. No offense to Cally, but he doesn't have the hockey sense to play with Stepan. Cally needs to be playing with some bangers who play straight ahead.

Callahan doesn't have the skill. His hockey sense is his greatest asset. They work well together on the forecheck, but that line needs a player like Nash - not a third 5'11 forechecker.

I agree, though, Stepan and Nash should be paired together. There is no reason whatsoever that they shouldn't.

yeah, something along those lines. But I would rather have:

Hag-Step-Nash

Krieder-Miller-Cally

Pyatt-Richards-Gabs

Powe-Boyle-Asham.

What do you mean? He's soft as hell, skates like he has clogs on,- and we should trade him for Proven Second Linerô Jussi Jokinen!

So happy with Step. If you told me last year he'd be a first line center this soon I would have laughed at you.

Steps has been embarrassing the wine connoisseur on an every game basis. Richards should be embarrassed. What a loser...."I'm lost and confused" no comments from me today. I already got my upfront $12 lemons, what do I owe you Giannone? What a primmadonna. Go out and play, don't wallow in your misery you sad excuse for a 1st line center. When you get out-muscled by Ribeiro, you don't deserve to play with Nash and Gaborik. Would have loved to see them in between a real 1st line center.

Yeah but we could've landed Jokinen.

13 points in his last 11 games if I did my math correctly.

A very good player. Next to Cally potentially our next home grown difference maker. Could use a few more a dose.
