Derek Stepan snipes Varlamov with a laser (GIF)

Just about the only good thing to happen in last night’s 3-2 “skills competition” loss to the Colorado Avalanche (who side note, may be heading for a stumble), is this beautiful snipe by Derek Stepan. Freezes the defenseman and Varlamov in one motion, picks the corner. Won’t see that in your local beer league.

Miller has been recalled on an emergency basis in case one or both cannot go tonight. Since Miller’s call up is on an emergency basis, he will not count against the four call ups allotted to teams following the trade deadline.

Derek Stepan’s improved form crucial to Rangers’ hopes

Derek Stepan is essential to the Rangers Too many times this season, Derek Stepan – no longer a kid on the Rangers roster – has been a passenger. It speaks to Stepan’s talent and the expectancy that goes with it that with 48 points, and on course for 55, most people consider his season an underwhelming, inconsistent one. Stepan needs to be involved and needs to generate offense...

The Rangers cannot afford to trade Derek Stepan

Derek Stepan needs to be kept in a Ranger jersey. It’s the time in hockey season where rumours are rampant. Ryan Callahan is apparently already half way out the door, the Rangers are apparently in bed with Martin St Louis and apparently Glen Sather will ‘check in’ on Ryan Kesler. All of these rumours have legs to some degree, so when you hear Derek Stepan’s name mooted as...

Mats Zuccarello doing big things for the New York Rangers

At 5’7, you might not notice Mats Zuccarello walking down Broadway. But on the ice, the diminutive forward sticks out like a dinghy at a Yacht Club. Mats Zuccarello is playing a key role now for the New York Rangers. The average NHL player is just over 6’1, with legs the size of tree trunks and shoulders you could build a city on. So it’s impossible not to notice – and root...

Message to Derek Stepan: Take the Money and Play

It’s quite ridiculous that we are sitting here, less than a week from the start of the NHL regular season, and the New York Rangers’ leading scorer from last year, albeit a shortened year, is holding out over what is seemingly pocket change in the world of sports. Of course, Glen Sather is the easy […]

Dreger: Stepan “unlikely” to be in lineup opening day

Per Darren Dreger, grain of salt required, the Rangers and holdout center Derek Stepan are just $500k per year (over a two-year bridge deal) apart on contract negotiations. New York is taking a hardball approach,  sticking to $3 million per year over the two-year deal. Stepan wants $3.5 million. I believe $3.5 million is closer to market value, since Nazem Kadri and his one full...

Rangers struggling to keep Derek Stepan

One of the few question marks surrounding the Rangers before training camp opens is the status of restricted free-agent Derek Stepan. Assistant general manager Jeff Gorton said he expects a deal to get done with the 23-year-old but added the Rangers aren’t willing to break the bank to do it — especially with the salary cap being reduced this season. “I think there’s always...

Can You Find Derek Stepan In This Photo?

It might be easier to find Derek Stepan in this photo than on the ice.
