DEREK STEPAN RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Rangers Have Upgraded At Center Because Stepan Is A Year Older

Here’s an outstanding video from JC Graphic Design showcasing Derek Stepan… …i’ve seen a lot of complaints from Rangers fans this offseason about the failure of Sather to upgrade the team’s pivots. While the Rangers GM didn’t add a #1 center via free agency or a trade, I can assure you that the Blueshirts will be much improved up the middle because of the mere...

The lingering problem that is Derek Stepan

Following the news of former New York Ranger and fan favourite Brandon Dubinsky signing an excessive (market representative?) new deal with the Columbus Blue Jackets I was having a twitter chat with well-informed Ranger fan and friend of the blog George Ays (Ranger Smurf). We started discussing the Derek Stepan situation and how Dubinsky’s deal […] The post The lingering problem...

WATCH: Stepan helps save game for Rangers

After Anton Stralman pulled the puck off the goal line earlier in the game to prevent a goal, a puck squeaked through with less than 1:15 left in the game. The puck sat on the goal line for what seemed like an eternity before Rangers forward Derek Stepan pulled the puck off the goal line […] The post Derek Stepan Pulls Puck Off Goal Line To Save Game For Rangers appeared first on Diehardsport.

Stepan forgives Prust for hit that broke his jaw

New York Rangers center Derek Stepan is ready to move on from the incident that broke his jaw in the Eastern Conference final against the Montreal Canadiens. Habs forward Brandon Prust delivered a high, late hit to Stepan’s head in the first period of Game 3.

Stepan travels with the team to Montreal for game five

Been told Derek Stepan is accompanying the Rangers on the team flight to Montreal. No word yet on J.T. Miller. — Andrew Gross (@AGrossRecord) May 26, 2014 The fact Stepan is traveling with the team leaves open the possibility for him to return in game five on Tuesday night. Depending on how much longer this series lasts, I do think it is probable that he will play. His broken jaw...

Stepan likely to miss game four, reports say

Those hoping for a storybook or movie moment where the hero defies the odds, steps out onto playing surface and leads his team to victory when the chips are down (ala Willis Reed or Mark Messier) will be disappointed tomorrow evening when Derek Stepan is officially scratched from the lineup. Stepan had surgery inserting a […]

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...

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...

Derek Stepan and CBA inefficiency

It signs the contract or else it gets the hose again. Up until pre-season games start up in earnest, the fan focus around Rangerland will continue to be Derek Stepan’s unresolved contract situation.  The boys around here have done a fantastic job covering the specifics, comparables and negotiating leverage surrounding the Blueshirt’s final RFA, but I wanted to examine a slightly...
