New York Rangers re-sign two of their own players which should help clear up the Derek Stepan situation in the long run.
The New York Rangers announced today they have come to terms with Emerson Etem and Oscar Lindberg.
Lindberg signed for a reported 2 year deal at $650,000, per Larry Brooks.
This is a nice bargain for the Rangers, especially if Lindberg is able to make the transition to the NHL game and become a third or fourth line center.
With the Rangers now locking up two more potential roster players the muddy water that is Derek Stepan’s arbitration hearing can become a little clearer.
These two deals are perfect for the Rangers cap situation and exactly what needed to happen to make getting Stepan signed a little easier.
While it may still be a tight squeeze and the Rangers may still need to shed a contract to get Derek Stepan signed, Jeff Gorton had a good day at the bargaining table.
