What makes you think Stepan was available for a holdout like RoR?

in a vacuum, I'd probably take PAP. A top 10-15 wing is better than a top 25-30 center.
Top-10 winger?

Show me.

By the way, Stepan has played more games in the NHL than PaP when you combine their playoff experience.

Ah, Boom Boom jumping in on a thread about a Ranger, defending the Ranger. Shocking.

On a side note, I've noticed a lot of Ranger fans have had it out for Parenteau due to the fact that he once played for them and then went on to put up stellar numbers elsewhere after being written off as a bust. Considering their trouble scoring, and lack of depth, its hard to imagine they don't have any use for his services.

As for the poll, right now its easily Parenteau, 2-3 years out its probably just as easily Stepan.

Is there any point to an open poll when the high majority of people rushing in to comment are only concerned with pimping their guy? I mean even if it were a blowout, which this one clearly is not, wouldn't the point of the poll be to see what neutral fans thought. Or is it just to get some imaginary jolly off because you helped "your guy" win a poll on the internet?

Oh, no! Rangers fans on HFBoards voting in a poll for Derek Stepan! The humanity. Interesting how you neglected to point out the Avs and Isles fans voting for Parenteau. Rangers fans in this specific poll are likely better informed than Avs fans. We've seen Parenteau play first hand, while most Avs fans have probably never bothered to tune into a Rangers game and watch Stepan at work. And the Islanders fans, of course, have an incessant desire to feed their inferiority complex.

See? I can build straw men, too. It's easy.

I agree with this

And I like PAP's face.

I haven't gpotten to watch PA much since he left the rangers and I'd bet money almost all the people in this thread can say the same thing for PA, Step or both. Yet with age, production and position I'd suspect most would take the center.

PA because he has higher offensive talent, and he is a winger.

Parenteau is the better player at the moment but Stepan is younger and plays center. I'm sure most teams would take him.

Weird comparison. You like cars or ice cream more?

Notice how practically all of my posts are regarding my favorite team, versus the majority of your posts are regarding a team you have repeatedly proven to dislike?

Again, you post more about the Rangers than any other team. And you're criticizing me for posting about Rangers-related threads.

Aside for offensive-play, P.A isn't anything exciting. He's a small winger who's not physical and doesn't have great defensive instincts.

Stepan is younger, superior defensively, plays a tougher position, and hasn't even come close to scratching his potential.

Reality is, if Stepan was not a Ranger, you wouldn't be posting in this very thread. And you wonder why I like to expose your real agenda on this forum. Again, the majority of your posts are involving a team you clearly dislike. That makes you a troll. Troll.

You guys watched PAP play 4 years ago, when he was nothing more then an AHLer. This post just shows how little you actually know about his play.


PAP is the better player right now. Better offensive instincts, stronger vision. He can find the open man and slow the game down, aspects Stepan can not do. And PAP has become very good on the Defensive end, on par with Stepan at least.

Stepan is younger, and still has the potential to grow into a #1C, I wish the Avs had him, he is a real good player. But PAP is the better player right now.

Yea, you're right. His 33 points in 32 games, tied for 15th in the league is just absolutely horrible.

Definitely a strong candidate for an Amnesty buyout this summer.

Given how close they are, it really comes down to team needs. PAP's offensive abilities seem to be a bit more rare than Stepan's defensive, but that's just my speculation/opinion.

So a .78 (Stepan) ppg is considered the same production as a 1.03 (PA) ppg now? Parenteau is the better player right now but as a GM you probably take the younger player. The fact that Stepan plays center helps too.

Saying parenteau is a top-10 winger is one of the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard

currently 7th in winger scoring. Last season was 18th (1st in assists by RW). Season before 21st. Pretty good, no?
