Will Derek Stepan and Chris Kreider Be The Doug Weight and Tony Amonte Of This Generation?

Doug Weight and Tony Amonte. How I used to cringe throughout the 90’s whenever I saw them dominating the NHL. Both of them the crown jewels of the New York Rangers prospect list in the early 90’s. Both were college bred American born players and both absolute necessary trade chips towards building the 1994 Stanley [...]
