New York Rangers’ forward Derek Stepan has been  an instrumental part of the team’s success this year.

But even Mr. Stepan is not immune from making bone-headed comments from time to time.

Does this comment make anyone else want to pull their hair out? Stepan is just figuring this out?

For anyone who doesn’t know the team’s track record from the past couple of years, it usually consists of the Rangers finding a lead and then one of two things usually happens.

The Rangers will either blow the lead (ahem, Buffalo game) or they will stop attacking and allow their opposition to have scoring chances.

Really Steps, REALLY?
