A Glam Slam:
MrPorter.com, an online retail destination for men’s style, recognized Henrik Lundqvist’s fashion sense in its current issue of The Journal. In a new feature called “The Look,” Lundqvist shows off his impeccable suiting style, a characteristic that has helped him cement his status as one of the best-dressed athletes across sports. The New York Rangers goaltender was previously highlighted in The Journal, when fans were offered as a behind-the-scenes look in “The Way I Dress.” There he can be seen getting ready for a night on the town.
Photographed by Hasse Nielsen and styled by Dan May, Lundqvist’s latest shoot has him modeling designer threads, predominately Valentino suits and tuxedos. The backdrop of the shoot, described by Lundqvist as “Very stylish. Very glamorous,” was Gothenburg’s Villa Overas. For the full piece, visit here. Below is an excerpt:
The suave New York Rangers goaltender is a regular feature on international best-dressed lists, and is just as well known for his looks. While there’s no denying that he could pass for older than his 31 years, he remains, to quote Derek Zoolander, “really, ridiculously good-looking”, with piercing eyes, an envy-inducing head of hair, and chiselled features that, if anything, the first signs of age have served only to accentuate.

If you’re an Eastern Conference club — with salary-cap space — looking to aggravate the New York Rangers field an offer sheet to restricted free agent Derek Stepan.
Stepan and the Rangers remain far apart in their negotiations the New York Post reported Tuesday.
According to Larry Brooks’ Post story Stepan is believed to be after a five- or six-year deal worth approximately...
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
Stepan is believed seeking a five- or six-year deal in the neighborhood of $5 million per while the Rangers are believed offering a two-year contract worth between $2.75-and-$3 million a year.
Stepan’s request is not at all outlandish given his work the first three seasons of his career during which he clearly outperformed an extremely...
Barring an unexpected seismic shift in contract talks that have gone nowhere all summer between the Rangers and Derek Stepan the unsigned 24-year-old restricted free agent center will not report tomorrow for his physical on the first day of training camp.
Thus Stepan who has remained at his home in Wisconsin even as the Blueshirts have been holding organized albeit informal workouts...
As training camp draws near the Rangers still are left with one important piece of business to finish; namely re-signing RFA top-six Center Derek Stepan to a new contract and fans are none too pleased it’s taking so long. Blue Shirt backers realize how important Stepan is to the future success of the club and […]
The Rangers opened training camp today with physicals and meetings and while much of the focus was on Derek Stepan's absence, the message delivered by new coach Alain Vigneault to the team was perfect. Vigneault had T-shirts handed out to each player, which said: "Clean Slate: Grab It." In essence, what happened in the past is in the past and has no bearing on now....
Larry Brooks wrote today that restricted free agent Derek Stepan will not report to training camp when it opens tomorrow for the Rangers. I would love to say this is a big shock, especially after it appeared earlier this summer that Stepan would report despite the lack of a new deal, but on reflecting upon it and based upon the rhetoric from his agent, it shouldn't be.

This 2013-14 NHL season preview features the New York Rangers.
Having made a huge splash acquiring Rick Nash, the Rangers had very high hopes heading into the season.
They managed to make the playoffs as the 6th seed, edging out the 9th place Jets by 5 points. Not what you’d consider “safe”.
Once in the post-season, they narrowly defeated the Washington Capitals in 7 games...
John Tortorella sat down with James Cybulski of Sportsnet to talk the team, the city and dealing with the media.
Stepan > Kadri
In case you missed it, Nazem Kadri signed a two-year bridge deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs last night worth $2.9 million per season. Kadri has just 99 NHL games played –only one full season– and has a line of 23-37-63 over those 99 games. In his only full season, the lockout shortened season, Kadri put up 18-26-44. That 18-26-44 should look familiar, since...
After a disastrous 1992-93 season which saw the Rangers plummet into last place, make a coaching change in mid-season, miss the playoffs, and their Stanley Cup drought reach 53 years, it was clear changes were on the way. Soon after the regular season ended, the Rangers hired hard-nose task-master Mike Keenan as the franchises 26th […]
