Sign Derek Stepan At All Costs

It is contracts like Ryan O’Reilly’s that skew the players’ salary scale up and kill teams like the New York Rangers with a core of solid, but not superstar players. Derek Stepan is going to get paid like a star for solid player production.

If you look to trade Stepan, or don’t resign him to the arbitration deal, you might as well tear it down and start a mini-rebuild.

Derek Stepan is a core player that must be introduced on opening night with a shiny new contract.

Thanks Buffalo, we will take it out on you on the ice.
